    The fact that a hold-up like that occurred is scary…and dangerous enough. Even scarier, however, is the fact that this particular hold-up occurred in broad daylight!

    Probably the same guy who lost out on thousands of edibles. Trying to recoup his losses and pay the legal fees.

    I read it on other sights as two different incidents?

      I think they are one and the same. But I could be wrong. Let me confirm.

        How many of these posts end with “more to follow” and are never followed up on? A lot.

          A follow up is nice but your busy being a yuppie, reporter, politician, and stealing elections.

    Sounds like the guy who held up a young woman last night at H and East 8th

      According to BPD, there was no one held up last night at H&8th. It was this morning at Shamrock. I think things are getting confused on social media. Surprise, surprise!

      someone check if these guys have been let out.. https://www.facebook.com/BostonPoliceDepartment/posts/10155316019907685

      They got caught 2 blocks away from where this happened with guns and ski masks, this was a month ago, wouldnt be surprised if they made bail and went right back to what they were doing.

      I was thinking the same thing. It has to be the same guy.

        Why does it “ Have to be the same guy” ? Old School Southie was notorious for producing armed robbers, though back in those days the Golden Rule was never to steal from the neighborhood or target women, both of those rules were broken here but heroin addictions make people desperate. Anyway, the moral of the story is that it absolutely does NOT “ have to be the same guy” Don’t be too comfy in Southie and keep your gaurd up. Even with gentrification I assure you there are still dozens of the Old Gaurd who are capable and willing to seperate you from your paycheck, roaming the streets of the hood.

    Well, Welcome to the NEW and IMPROVED SOUTH BOSTON. Otherwise known as YUPPIEVILLE.

    Stuff like this never would happen in the old days.

      Absolutely right. What’s with all these hoodies? In the old days they would have worn nylon stockings and a leather jacket.
