Boston man arrested for outstanding warrant

Kyle Harris-Dolan
On June 1, 2014 at approximately 9 PM Transit Police officers working in Area 2 received a radio call to respond to Maverick Sq. MBTA station for an unknown problem. Upon arrival officers were met by a group of high school aged students from California visiting Boston on a class trip. They furnished the following information; while the students from California were playing Frisbee in the park adjacent to Airport MBTA Station one of them placed their Apple iPhone 4S on the grass in close proximity to the group. Subsequently, the California students alleged, a male later identifed as Kyle Harris-Dolan 23 of Boston, walked by and retrieved the phone and quickly proceeded to enter into Airport Station.  Harris-Dolan boarded an inbound Blue Line train, the students, who followed Harris-Dolan notified a station official who in turn contacted Transit Police.

Officers intercepted the train as it pulled into Maverick Sq. station and Dolan-Harris was positively identified as the person who absconded with the student's phone. Harris-Dolan  informed the officers as he was walking through the park he "found" the phone. The phone was reunited with it's rightful owner and officers soon discovered  Harris-Dolan was wanted out of Lynn District Court for Assault & Battery.  Harris-Dolan was placed into custody for the warrant and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. The students from California informed the officers based on their state of residence they did not wish to pursue any charges relative to the phone.
