On March 22, 2018 at approximately 10:20PM Transit Police officers assigned to the Department's Crime Suppression Team 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 Stephen Santosuosso, 36, of Weymouth. Santosuosso fare evaded by "piggybacking" in behind a paying customer. Officers approached Santosousso for the purposes of issuing a citation and subsequently discovered there was a warrant in existence for Santosousso's arrest issued from Taunton District Court for Intimidation of a Witness. Santosuosso was placed into custody and transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process.
During the booking process officers recovered a controlled Class A substance from his person.
