The coed wore Prada

A recent theft from a student living on Gerald Road in Brighton included bags from Prada, Tumi and Chanel, three(!) coats from Burberry, and a few other items that ring in for a total of $6050. Ka-ching, ka-ching, the girl likes to shop. Just don’t ever complain about your student loans, OK?

That little old lady in your yoga class may be up to no good

Last Wednesday a woman had her wallet lifted while she was taking a yoga class at the Oak Square Y. The elderly suspect had an enormous purse, “overflowing” with stuff, according to the victim. Leaving her wallet on a bench in the yoga studio, she noticed the gray-haired possible perp sitting there. The loot included credit cards, passports for the US and Canada, and $400. Theft has been a problem at the facility since the day it opened. In another incident, Monday of this week a member returned to his locker to discover that his gym bag had been taken, containing his wallet, credit cards and iPhone.

Stink bomb of a party

The BPD shut down a party at 2 Guilford Street near Union Square in Allston in the early morning hours of Saturday, October 23. As they were doing this one of the departing partygoers tossed a stink bomb at a house farther down Guildford Street, apparently in retaliation for complaints about all the noise. It being a crazy night, the officers didn’t arrest anyone but did issue a summons for public drinking. The owner of this single-family is listed as Theano Tsekrekas of Greece. Now, someone must be managing the property locally. Wonder who?

3AM closing time fails to reduce crime

A Domino’s Pizza employee was punched, fell and knocked unconscious when a group of five people decided they didn’t like the fact the pizza parlor had no public restrooms. This Allston location was recently granted an extension of its closing hour to 3AM. Thank goodness the company offers health insurance.

Keyless entry

Boston police responded to call of a breaking and entering at 3:30AM Sunday morning at 33 Highgate Street in Allston. After a brief chase, they apprehended the suspect, who was quite apologetic, but still arrested.

Highgate Street runs from Cambridge Street to Farrington Avenue, and is often used as a short cut to Brighton Avenue. Don’t do it during rush hour, it is not allowed during that time and police sometimes pull people over for making the turn when they’re not distracted by burglars.

Arraigned, expelled, evicted

The students from the Ashford Street fraternity are getting hit from all sides. The Alpha Epsilon Pi bro’s are scheduled to appear in Brighton District Court on May 7 for the hazing. Their landlord wants to evict them. And BU says it will expel them. The national fraternity has suspended the chapter. Of course, innocent until proven guilty, they will get their day before local judges and university officials. Yeah, right. Say goodbye to Allston, boys.

Duct tape & condiments

Our local police rescued a bunch of BU fraternity pledges, and now have some fun stories to tell, after discovering five students wearing only their underwear and hot sauce, fish sauce, sardine cans and other accessories.

Makes you wish Dr. Silber were still around, just to hear him rant about the decline of Western Civilization and future BU donors. (h/t Adam at Universal Hub)

St. Pat’s party hosts escorted to D-14 via the Paddy Wagon

A few Allston hipsters decided to behave like boyos on St. Patrick’s Day on Barrows Street in Allston. Or maybe not, they were indulging in weed along with beer. My least favorite holiday. When asked on March 17, I give my ancestry as Kenyan.
