Around 19:00 hours last night, a Mass State Police Trooper attempted to stop a Mercedes SUV on Route 138 in Milton. The driver fled, continuing down Route 138 at a high rate of speed.
The Trooper made the decision not to engage pursuit due to safety concerns and the highly populated area, calling it in instead. The vehicle was later located abandoned on Pope Hill Road in Milton and was determined to have been stolen in Boston earlier in the day.
Mass State Police, with the assistance of Boston Police and Milton Police, set a perimeter and were able to track down the occupants of the vehicle. The passenger was identified and released, and the driver who was identified as Andre Junior, 24, of Boston was placed in custody and transported to the Milton Barracks for booking.
