James Cox, 45, of Quincy, was arrested at 12:24 p.m. on Feb. 8, and charged with larceny over $200/shoplifting. An officer was in Coolidge Corner due to the recent bank robberies in the area and saw Cox, who the officer knew from previous encounters. Cox, the officer alleged, appeared to be hiding something under his sweatshirt. He reportedly walked into a children’s store on Harvard Street and about 20 minutes later, observed Cox carry two bags of toys out of the store. Cox allegedly went to a green Ford Explorer and placed the bags in the back seat and then, closed the vehicle and walked with the empty bags back into the store. Another unit was called to the area to assist the officers. The officers spoke with the driver of the Ford Explorer who said he had given his friend “James” a ride to Brookline and admitted he didn’t know him that well. They ran a check on the driver and he had no active warrants. The officers took the items back to the store and spoke with the store manager and other employees and asked if Cox had paid for the items. None of them remembered Cox approaching them to buy items. An employee took one of the officers out back to watch video security footage and alleged that Cox came in with nothing and left with two bags full of toys. Cox was arrested outside of the store. He allegedly denied stealing the toys, valued at about $271. Cox allegedly became “belligerent and uncooperative” and had to be double handcuffed to the booking cell bar.
