On May 5, 2016 at approximately 10:25AM Transit Police officers assigned to the Central District received a radio call to respond to the CVS located within the MBTA South Station Commuter Rail for a report of a shoplifter. Upon arrival officers spoke with employees of CVS who provided them with a description of a female who had stolen items from their store. Within minutes officers located a female seated at the bar inside Tavern In The Square Restaurant, also located within MBTA South Station, who matched the description provided. Officers soon discovered the female, later identified as Roberta St.John-Maynard, 48, of Billerica to be in possession of merchandise from CVS of which she did not pay for. St. John-Maynard was placed into custody for Shoplifting and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. During the booking process it was revealed St John-Maynard had warrants in existence for her arrest issued from Lowell District Court for Drug Violations and Leaving the Scene-Property Damage and Clinton District Court for Driving with a Revoked License.
