Arrests made in car wash armed robbery case


Canton Police Chief Ken Berkowitz announced the arrests of two men in connection with an armed robbery at Prestige Car Wash and Gas on Turnpike Street last week.

The incident occurred around 10:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 19, and an ensuing investigation led to the arrest of Fernando Quade, 21, of Canton, and Reginald Boiteux, 21, of Brockton, on Monday evening, October 23. Both were charged with armed robbery while masked, larceny over $250, and conspiracy to commit a crime. They were both due to be arraigned in Stoughton District Court on Tuesday afternoon.

“The quick apprehension of these two individuals is a direct result of the initial response of our patrol officers and the diligent follow-up investigation conducted by our detectives,” stated Berkowitz in a news release announcing the arrests. “I commend them for their commitment to keeping Canton safe.”

Clarification on drug incident at GMS

The Canton Police Department has issued a clarification on the report in last week’s Canton Citizen concerning a drug-related medical incident that occurred recently on the grounds of the Galvin Middle School. According to the report, a man who had been hired to power wash a picnic table at the school, identified as Joshua A. Harris, 27, of Norton, required medical attention after allegedly using heroin in the school parking lot. Harris was transported to an area hospital and was subsequently summoned to court to face drug possession charges. According to Police Lt. Charles Rae, the suspect was not hired by GMS or the Canton Public Schools; rather, he was hired by Cole-Harrington, which leases space at the middle school.
