At about 10:30 PM on Wednesday October 27, 2021, officers assigned to District E-5 (West Roxbury) arrested Henry Lindemann, 19, of Boston following a call for an attempted breaking and entering to a motor vehicle in the area of Vermont Street and Potomac Street in West Roxbury. On approach, officers were informed that the suspect and a second unidentified male were observed attempting to gain entry to several parked motor vehicles in the area by pulling on the door handles. Officers have responded to several recent calls on the district involving break-ins to unlocked motor vehicles. Upon arrival, officers began to canvass the area, eventually locating the suspect with the assistance of members of the BPD K-9 Unit as he attempted to conceal himself in the bushes of a residence on Lasell Street.

The suspect will appear in West Roxbury District Court on charges of Trespassing and Attempted Breaking and Entering of a Motor Vehicle.

Detectives continue to investigate this incident as the second suspect remains at large.

The Boston Police Department reminds all our residents across the City of Boston to secure their vehicles to help ensure they don’t become an easy target for these types of crimes.
