On February 28, 2014 at approximately 2:50 pm Transit Police officers working in Area 3 were conducting Point of Entry Policing at the MBTA Quincy Center station. While there officers observed a male, later identified as Jeremy Riley
, 34 of Quincy enter through the fare gates without paying his fare. Officers approached Riley for the purpose of issuing a citation. Riley attempted to outsmart the officers and furnished a false name and social security number. The officers were undeterred and ascertained Riley's true identity which revealed there was a warrant in existence for his arrest issued out of Dorchester District Court for Operating a Motor Vehicle while being impaired by Drugs and Operating a Motor Vehicle with a Revoked License. Riley was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. During this time officers discovered Riley was in possession of prescription narcotics for which he did not have a prescription. It is expected Riley will be arraigned sometime on March 3, 2014 at Quincy District Court for violation of the Commonwealth's drug laws.
Riley was also issued a citation for fare evasion.
