Point of Entry Policing- Ruggles MBTA

Julio Morales
On April 23, 2015 at approximately 12pm Transit Police officers working in Area 4 were conducting Point of Entry Policing at the MBTA's Ruggles station. While there they observed a male, later identified as Julio Morales, 26, of Roxbury fare evade by "piggybacking" in behind a paying customer. Officers approached Morales for the purpose of issuing a citation and subsequently discovered there were three warrants in existence for his arrest issued from Boston Municipal Court for Carrying a Dangerous Weapon, Larceny Over 250.00 and Uttering a false check. Morales was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. During this process Morales was found to be in possession of just under one ounce of marijuana.

Morales was issued a citation for fare evasion and possession of marijuana.
