On January 5, 2015 at approximately 5:15pm Transit Police officers working in Area 1 were on patrol at the MBTA's South Station Commuter Rail. While there they were approached by a concerned patron who informed them a male was making inappropriate comments to female patrons. The officers located the male subject, later identified as Joseph Granigan, 48, of South Weymouth inside the lobby area. Subsequently officers discovered there was a warrant in existence for Granigan's arrest issued from Boston Municipal Court-Central Division for Distribution of a Controlled Class E substance. Granigan was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
