From BPD News:

On Wednesday, February 28, 2024, around 11:18 AM, officers from District C-6 (South Boston) apprehended Miriam Dealmeida, 38, of Boston, following an unarmed bank robbery.

Responding to a bank alarm at 501 Southampton St, bank staff informed officers that a robbery had just occurred. The suspect, described as a white female, approximately 5′ tall, wearing a thin black hoodie with the hood covering her head, blue jeans, and a white disposable surgical mask, fled in an unknown direction. Broadcasting the suspect’s description, officers scoured the area, and a courageous bystander flagged them down on Father Songin Way, where he was restraining a woman matching the suspect’s description.

The bystander recounted that while traveling down Boston St toward Andrew Station, he noticed the suspect running from the bank parking lot with red smoke emitting from her hooded sweatshirt pocket. Pursuing her down Dorchester Ave and onto Father Songin Way, the bystander apprehended the suspect and alerted a nearby Sergeant.

Dealmeida was arrested and is charged with Unarmed Bank Robbery, with further charges anticipated for a separate bank robbery earlier that day at 68 Kneeland St, East West Bank. She is expected to appear for arraignment at South Boston District Court.

      …they’re not. You just want them to be, that’s all. The media described her as a “White” female. Is that racist? I mean…by now it probably is, I don’t know.
      I can’t keep up.
