UPDATED, March 19: Arlington police have arrested a 23-year-old Somerville man after he allegedly broke into a local bicycle shop.
Levi N. Russell was charged with breaking and entering in the nighttime to commit a felony after investigate a commercial alarm at 3:09 a.m. Monday, March 18, at Quad Cycles, 1043 Mass. Ave.
Upon arrival, a police news release said, officers found that the right side of glass double doors leading into the shop had been shattered with a large 10-inch-square rock. After clearing and securing the scene, police found that surveillance footage from inside the store showed a white male in his 20s with dark red curly hair breaking into the shop about 6 minutes before they arrived and taking a bright-colored, pink Cannondale bicycle from the store.
About 4 a.m. police located a man, identified as Russell, matching the description of the individual from the surveillance video and in possession of a bike matching the one missing from the store, walking on Broadway. After an on-scene investigation in front of St. Paul's Cemetery, at 30 Broadway, Russell was placed under arrest.
