A Milton man accused of stealing a $14,000 flute and iPad from a Boston University student in August was arraigned Thursday on theft and trespassing charges, according to the Suffolk district attorney’s office.
Nathaniel Oliver, 69, was summonsed to Brighton Municipal Court to face two counts of larceny of over $250 and one count of trespassing related to the Aug. 29 incident, prosecutors said in a statement.
Oliver, who lived in Mattapan at the time of the alleged theft, was released on personal recognizance, the statement said.
The student who owned the silver flute and iPad told Boston University campus police that the items were taken after she briefly left a classroom. Surveillance footage taken by cameras inside and outside the building showed a middle aged man, later identified as Oliver, as the only person in the immediate vicinity.
Investigators recognized him as a man who had identified himself as “Nathaniel” in a prior incident on campus. Police used pawn shop records to identify Oliver, the statement said.
According to officials, Oliver led investigators to the stolen items, which were located in a locked storage room inside the Milton building where he resides. They were returned to the victim.
Oliver is due back in court on December 8.
