Great News!!!! I live in the Back Bay and my mirror from my BMW was also ripped off the car. $1200.00 later it was fixed. I also called the police two weeks ago on Marlborough Street when I saw a young male turning mirrors the opposite way as he walked up Marlborough. Sure enough, with minutes, the Boston Police had him. Great police work by the BPD!!
