Cambridge Police responded to Foster Place for a possible flimflam report. Upon arrival, Officers met with residents who stated that around approximately 10 a.m. they received a phone call from whom they believed to be their grandson, who had stated to them he was just arrested by the Brookline Police. The suspect stated that he went to Brookline with a group of friends for one of their classmates/friend’s funeral and that he missed the bus back and was getting a ride from a friend. The suspect then stated that the cops had pulled them over and that they found $90,000 worth of drugs in the car and that he had been arrested and that they took his cell phone and put him in a holding cell. The residents stated that a guy who stated his name was an Officer with the Brookline Police Department got on the phone and began to explain the situation and told the residents that they believed their grandson was innocent and if he cooperated with them and testified against his friend that they would give him bail. The “Officer” then stated to them that they handed the case over to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) because of how many drugs were involved. The “Officer” then stated that the residents needed to give them $9,500 US dollars and to not tell anyone about what is going on and that they need to call a number when they have the money and they will be able to pick up their grandson. Brookline PD was notified of the scam and the residents never exchanged any of the requested money.
