Alert TPD officers arrest man wanted for Attempt to Murder

On August 21st, 2012 at approximately 6pm Transit Police officers assigned to Area 1 were at Park St and Downtown Crossing MBTA stations conducting fare evasion enforcement. While there an alert officer observed an individual, later identified as Terrance Cannon, 32 of Boston, MA., walking down the Tremont Street underpass to DTC. The officer recognized Cannon from a Wanted Poster issued on the 17th of August by the Brookline Police Department for Armed Assault with Intent to Murder.

Officers approached Cannon who was holding an open pint sized container of alcohol and explained their reason for speaking with him. Cannon furnished a false name, date of birth and social security number to the officers and exhibited signs of great nervousness. Eventually officers were able to confirm Cannon's true identity which revealed Cannon had 3 Warrants in existence for his arrest: Armed Assault w/Intent to Murder, Unarmed Robbery and for driving an automobile without being licensed. Additionally, Cannon was in possession of Cocaine at the time Transit Police took him into custody. Cannon was transported to TPD HQ for the booking process. He will be arraigned in Boston Municipal Court for the cocaine possession charge sometime today and transfered over to Brookline District Court on the Armed Assault with Intent to Murder charge.
