BOSTON (WHDH) - A man was arrested at South Station Monday night after he tried to steal a detective's backpack.

Detectives from the Special Crimes Unit were at the bus terminal conducting an investigation when one was approached by a man who engaged in conversation.

The man, Cory Deboer, 25, of Whitman, asked the detective if the backpack was his. As soon as the detective turned his back, Deboer grabbed the backpack and retreated.

Other detectives were observing Deboer and when he stopped to rummage through the bag, he was placed under arrest.

He has been charged with larceny and was arraigned in Boston Municipal Court on Wednesday.
