Livery Driver Held up at Gunpoint in Mattapan

The Boston Police Department reports that a livery driver, who picked up two men and was driving them to Mattapan on Saturday afternoon, ended up robbing him of $400 in cash.

The two men allegedly put what the driver believed to be a gun to the back of his head and stole his wedding band, cell phone, earrings and cash. The driver walked to Boston Police District B-3 in Dorchester and gave a description of the suspects. Boston Police Officers reportedly saw two men matching the description given by the driver and followed them to an apartment on Walk Hill Street.

Boston Police ultimately arrested Troy Fernandez, 21, and Molijah Burley, 19, both from Dorchester, and have charged them with Armed Robbery.

While pursuing Fernandez and Burley into the apartment, officers also observed a large bag of marijuana, and ended up arresting three other people for Drug Crimes. Rodney C. Haskin, 22, Phillip Henry, 24, and Sharon M. Thibeau, all of Mattapan, were all arrested and charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance, Marijuana.
