3rd time fare evader gets arrested.

On December 7th, 2012 at approximately 5:50pm Transit Police officers assigned to Area 3 were at Andrew Sq. MBTA station conducting fare evasion enforcement. While there they did observe a male, later identified as Robert Stone, 28 of Dorchester, MA., evade his fare by "piggybacking" in behind a paying customer. Officers approached Stone for the purpose of issuing a citation, Stone provided inconsistent answers as to his identity. Officers eventually determined his true name which revealed an outstanding warrant in existence for Stone's arrest issued from South Boston District Court for violating the Commonwealths's drug laws. Stone was placed into custody for the warrant, transported to Transit Police HQ for the booking process and issued a citation for fare evasion, which turned out to be his third offence.
