Robbers leave behind birth certificate, debit card
Two men who were recently arrested for separate robberies were their own worst enemy when they left identifying information behind at the scenes, authorities said.
A woman was robbed of her clutch purse late Monday while walking from the Fields Corner MBTA station, Boston police said. The man who robbed her left behind a pair of bags with clothes, shoes and his birth certificate.
The first incident occurred June 3 when a Chelsea man left behind his debit card while attempting to rob a man who had given him a ride in Mattapan Square. The man had also left behind his hat. After a brief investigation, police arrested the Chelsea man and he was arraigned last week, according to the Suffolk district attorney’s office.
