At about 10:35 AM on Thursday March 16, 2023, officers assigned to District E-18 (Hyde Park) located and arrested Jonathan Osorio, 27, of Hyde Park and Alvin Mojica, 29, of Roslindale following an investigation into a stolen motor vehicle. Officers and detectives had responded earlier in the day at about 7:48 AM to an auto service business located at 601 Cummins Highway where the suspects stole a vehicle after breaking into the building by shattering the glass front door. The suspects then took the keys to the vehicle and fled, crashing through a chain link fence of the secure property.
While on patrol and searching the area, the officers observed the stolen vehicle in the area of 745 River Street and performed a traffic stop. The officers noted that the vehicle now had improper plates attached. Upon stopping the vehicle, the operator, later identified as Osorio, immediately became combative but was placed in custody after a brief struggle. Officers then removed the lone passenger, later identified as Mojica, who was compliant but was found to be in possession of a taser which was located in a ‘fanny pack’ he was wearing across his chest.
Both suspects will appear in West Roxbury District Court for arraignment. Jonathan Osorio will be charged with Receiving a Stolen Motor Vehicle, Resisting Arrest, Attaching Plates and Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle. Alvin Mojica will be charged with Receiving a Stolen Motor Vehicle, Possession of a Stun Gun and Dangerous Weapon Unlawfully Carried.
