A New York City man is facing multiple charges after he allegedly stole a public works truck in South Boston and crashed it in Cambridge Monday morning.
Sean McNulty, 32, of Manhattan, was charged with larceny of a motor vehicle, leaving the scene of a motor vehicle crash causing property damage, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, unlicensed operation, and wanton destruction of property over $1,200, according to the Cambridge police log.
Cambridge police said McNulty allegedly took off in the truck earlier that morning and drove it to River Street in Cambridge. There, he allegedly crashed the truck into a fence and then took off on foot. Police arrested him not far from the crash scene around 7:52 a.m., the log says.
