Police: Man Stole From Man Who Collapsed, Died at MBTA Station

A Boston man is facing charges after allegedly rummaging through another man's belongings after he collapsed and died at an MBTA station.

MBTA police said 30-year-old Anthony Stimson has been arrested on a larceny charge after the early Wednesday morning incident.

MBTA officers responded to the MBTA's Downtown Crossing station around 5 a.m. for a medical emergency, where they found an unconscious 52-year-old man. Officers tried to perform life-saving measures on the man, but paramedics who arrived on the scene said he died.

An investigation into the incident allegedly showed that before officers arrived, a man, later identified as Stimson, came up to the victim as he was laying unconscious and went through and stole some belongings, including the victim's prescriptions.

Police said Stimson didn't try to help the victim as he laid unconscious.

Stimson was arrested on Summer Street, and officers found the prescription bottle under the victim's name on Stimson.

It's unclear when he'll face a judge or if he has an attorney.
