At about 2:52 AM on Monday November 22, 2021, officers assigned to District A-1 (Downtown) arrested three suspects after responding to a call for a breaking and entering in progress in the area of 50 Rowes Wharf in Boston. The officers were advised that three males had been observed gaining entry to the secured wharf and climbing aboard a large ship. Upon arrival, the officers observed two suspects, later identified as Zachary Whiting, 19, of Bridgewater and Lawrence Kirlis, 18, of Bridgewater, standing on the bow of the 97-foot-long yacht, Valiant. The officers gave verbal commands to the two suspects to return to the dock and were attempting to gain control of them when they heard splashing in the water on the opposite side of the vessel. Officers then observed the third suspect, Ryan Convery, 19, of Bridgewater, struggling in the water approximately twenty feet away from the dock. The suspect was coughing while attempting to stay above the water and stated to officers that he was cold and could not swim. The officers directed the suspect to grab hold of a nearby rope which they then used to pull him back towards the dock. Multiple officers then took hold of the rope, lifting him vertically out of the water to safety. Officers then provided first aid to Convery until Boston EMS arrived on scene at which time, he was transported to a local area hospital for treatment. The suspect was booked in the usual manner upon his release from the hospital.

While placing the two remaining suspects in custody on scene, the officers recovered a large bottle of vodka from the hooded sweatshirt of Whiting.

All three suspect will appear in Boston Municipal Court on charges of Breaking and Entering (Nighttime). Additionally, Whiting will be charged with Possession of Alcohol by a Minor.
