I took two photographs of Ricardo Colon as he was getting arrested tonight. He asked who that “geek” and *expletive deleted* taking pictures was.
If only he had known.
Last night, about two hours after the Country Farms at 56 Aiken Avenue in Lowell was robbed at gunpoint, I identified Mr. Colon, who is 24, as a suspect police said was arrestable for armed robbery while masked.
Here’s a link to the entry if you don’t recall.
If Colon read the good ole blog, perhaps he would have known multiple detectives, armed with an arrest warrant, would be showing up at his home this evening. I guess he’s not a fan.
I even checked with a detective last night before publishing Colon’s name as a suspect, just to make sure police didn’t think that would prompt him to flee or go into hiding.
That detective said he didn’t think publishing the name would be a problem.
Colon will be arraigned on Tuesday.
To be fair, Colon disputed his guilt while being taken into custody, and told detectives to check surveillance video from the store. Detectives identified Colon as a suspect after checking those videos Sunday night, according to police radio broadcasts.
