Teens charged with breaking into house
Three teens were arrested for allegedly trying to break in to a Quincy home after residents saw them acting suspiciously in the neighborhood.

According to police, a neighbor called at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday to say that four people she didn’t recognize had broken a screen of a nearby house on Buckingham Road and entered the premises.

Officers arrived and saw four teens run out the house and through multiple backyards. Officers were soon in pursuit, chasing after the suspects. Police eventually flanked and captured two of them.

Police set out looking for the other two suspects when a neighbor told police that he saw one of them hide behind a nearby house. An officer went to look and found one of the teens under a tarp.

Police could not locate the fourth suspect.

Police arrested Edson Rosa, 17, and a 15- and 16-year-old, all from Dorchester, and charged them with breaking and entering in the daytime, malicious destruction of property, and resisting arrest.

Two burglaries reported at Quincy businesses

Police are investigating a report of a burglary that occurred at the President’s Golf Course at the Wollaston Recreation Center.

According to police, alarms started going off on the premises at 10:45 p.m. on Tuesday night. Officers saw that the door had been smashed in.

A search of the building did not locate anyone. When an employee arrived, he reported that a cash drawer containing approximately $900 had been taken.

A second cash drawer had been partially pried open but access was not gained.

That same evening, at 4 a.m., a newspaper delivery boy reported that the front door to Alba Express Deli had been broken.

Police arrived on scene and were not able to find any suspects; however, a security feed showed that someone smashed in the front door with a piece of asphalt, entered the building, and stole the cash drawer.

Approximately $100 was taken.

Police described the man as a white male, 5’9”, wearing jeans, a black knit cap, white sneakers, and a grey jacket with a stripe around the shoulder area.
