1 min read

BROOKLINE — A routine patrol turned into a high-speed chase Tuesday night after a police officer attempted to stop a Hyundai Sonata for a moving violation at approximately 10:12 p.m. on Charlton Street.

The driver, identified as Marcos Rosado, sped up to evade the officer, prompting a pursuit in treacherous conditions due to the snow-covered and icy roads from an earlier storm.

The chase was called off for safety reasons after the road conditions caused an officer to skid off the road and hit a guardrail.

Despite the terminated pursuit, a Be On the Lookout (BOLO) alert was issued to surrounding areas for the vehicle and its occupants, Rosado and an unknown passenger.

An officer from the Charlton Police Department later apprehended the passenger, Nickelias Aponte, walking out of a driveway on Ellis Road.

The stolen vehicle was found parked at a single-family home, leading to a coordinated search with a K9 unit named “Vice” and support from the Charlton Police Department using a drone.

After several hours, Rosado was located and arrested.

Marcos L. Rosado, 21, of Roslindale, Massachusetts, was charged with receiving a stolen motor vehicle, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, operation with a suspended license, failure to stop for police, and other motor vehicle violations.

Rosado also faced several active arrest warrants for unrelated crimes.

Nickelias A. Aponte, 20, of Southbridge, Massachusetts, was arrested at the scene and charged with receiving a stolen motor vehicle, disturbing the peace, and disorderly conduct.
