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.
