While there they observed a male, later identified as Robert Glavin, 32, of Jamaica Plain fare evade by "piggybacking" in behind a paying customer. Officers approached Glavin for the purpose of issuing a citation and subsequently discovered there were several warrants in existence for Glavin's arrest issued from South Boston District Court for Possession to Distribute a Controlled Substance, Receiving Stolen Property Over 2500.00 and Brighton District Court for Shoplifting, Resisting Arrest and Carrying a Dangerous Weapon. Glavin was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. Glavin was also issued a citation for Fare Evasion.
