BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A saxophone stolen from a student at an MBTA station has been recovered, according to MBTA Transit Police.
Transit Police posted photos of a suspect on Friday Nov. 12 who reportedly stole the saxophone at the Field's Corner MBTA station at around 12:45 p.m. on Oct. 29. The suspect stole the saxophone while its owner, a 16-year-old Boston Public Schools student, was at the station.
The student reportedly placed her saxophone on a nearby bench and looked away for a brief moment. While she was looking away, the suspect quickly grabbed the instrument and fled the station.
Transit Police officials announced Wednesday they had identified the suspect after conducting an investigation by a dedicated Transit Police detective. The suspect was identified only as a 59-year-old Dorchester man. Transit Police said he will face charges for the incident.
The instrument was issued to the student by her school and was valued at around $3,000, according to Transit Police.
