On January 2, 2015 at approximately 5:49pm Transit Police officers working in Area 3 were conducting Point of Entry Policing at the MBTA's Andrew Sq. station. While there their attention was drawn to a male, later identified as Ivan Rivera, 25, of Middleboro, fare evade by "piggybacking" in behind a paying customer. Officers approached Rivera for the purpose of issuing a citation and subsequently discovered there were warrants in existence for his arrest issued from Quincy District Court motor vehicle violations.
