excellent, and I bet the girl paying her $200/month rent is still allowed to live there. Well, at least the neighbhors were looking out and got the police involved! Nice work!

What I find interesting is BPD provides this list, but never provides the names of those arrested for assault and battery, B&E, robbery or drug dealing when they are arrested in Charlestown? Or is this a case of editorial discretion?

Boston police reports (including the one from which this list was taken) redact the names of all involved. The police log includes the names of those arrested, but not what they have been charged with. Sometimes we're able to correlate the two. Sometimes there's too much uncertainty for us to confidently draw a line between the charges and the names of the arrested.
