Fare evader with hundreds of dollars worth of stolen property arrested at Andrew Sq. MBTA

Jeffrey Carroll
On August 10, 2017 at approximately 10:30PM Transit Police officers were conducting Point of Entry Policing at the MBTA's Andrew Sq. station. While there they had their attention drawn to a male, later identified as Jeffrey Carroll, 27, of Boston. Carroll entered through fare gates without paying his fare. Officers approached Carroll for the purpose of issuing a citation. At this time officers observed Carroll wearing Gucci sunglasses with the price tag of 345.00 still affixed. Carroll was also holding in his right hand another pair of Versace sunglasses with a price tag of 245.00 still affixed. Upon further inspection Carroll was wearing a pair of shorts with the Anti-Theft tag secured to the back.

Carroll's version of why the price tags and security device was still attached did not make much sense and was subsequently placed into custody for Receiving Stolen Property Over 250.00.




Carroll was transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.

Transit, Boston Police and Suffolk County DA's Office never give up on holding those responsible for violent acts

Alleged Gunman Charged in Maverick Square Double Shooting

BOSTON, August 8, 2017— A New York man was held on high bail at his arraignment today in a 2016 double shooting at an East Boston MBTA station, Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said.
ROGELIO ALVARADO (D.O.B. 914/94), most recently of Huntington, New York, was arraigned today in Suffolk Superior Court on charges of assault with intent to murder, unlawful possession of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm, and two counts of assault and battery by discharge of a firearm.  Assistant District Attorney Stacey Pichardo of the DA’s Gang Unit requested bail of $1 million bail; Alvarado was ordered held in lieu of $500,000 bail and ordered to stay away from all victims and witnesses and wear a GPS monitor in the event he posts that amount.
Boston and Transit Police responded to Maverick Square MBTA station on the afternoon of Jan. 19, 2016, where they located two men lying on the train platform suffering from gunshot wounds.  One of the victims was taken to Tufts Medical Center with gunshot wounds to his torso and back; the second was transported Massachusetts General Hospital with a gunshot wound to the head.  Both men survived their injuries.
According to prosecutors, the men were involved in a verbal argument with their assailant prior to the shooting.  A witness reported seeing a man who had blood on him and who matched the suspect’s description enter a cab outside the station and leave the area.  The man, identified through an investigation as Alvarado, insisted on being let out of the cab in Everett immediately upon hearing a radio transmission from the cab company dispatcher attempting to contact the driver.
Alvarado fled to New York following the shooting, and a Suffolk County Grand Jury returned indictments against him in March of 2016.  
He was stopped by police in Huntington, New York, on the night of July 12 as he drove a Toyota Solara the wrong way down a roadway, forcing other drivers off the shoulder of the road, prosecutors said.  Following his arrest for negligent operation of a motor vehicle, officers learned that he was wanted on a warrant out of Suffolk Superior Court.
Alvarado is represented by John Tardiff.  He returns to court Sept. 19.
