See report from BPD news:

At about 6:26 PM on Sunday December 8, 2019, officers assigned to District E-5 (West Roxbury) made an onsite arrest after responding to a call for a larceny in progress in the area of Cliftondale Street and Rosecliff Street in Roslindale. While on approach, officers were advised that a male suspect, later identified as Johnatan Cordero-Garcia, 23, of Dorchester, had been observed taking packages from the front porch of a residence on Rosecliff Terrace before fleeing the area on foot. Responding officers soon located the suspect and performed a pat frisk which led to the recovery of a Sig Sauer handgun from the suspect’s waistband which was later determined to be a BB gun. Officers also recovered a stolen pair of sneakers which had been removed from packaging which was addressed to the home on Rosecliff Terrace. Officers continued their investigation and were able to recover several toys which had been removed from their packaging and discarded by the suspect on Cliftondale Street. The suspect was placed in custody without incident after being positively identified on scene. The suspect will appear in West Roxbury District Court on charges of Larceny (Under $1200) and Receiving Stolen Property.
