On June 29, 2019 at approximately 9PM Transit Police officers assigned to the Central District were on patrol at the MBTA's Andrew Sq. station. While there they had their attention drawn to a male, later identified as Michael Stockwell, 31, of Saugus. Stockwell evaded the fare by "piggybacking" in behind a paying customer. Officers approached Stockwell for purposes of issuing him a citation and subsequently discovered there were several warrants in existence for his arrest issued from Boston Municipal Court for Larceny and Possession of Controlled Narcotics, Roxbury District Court for Distribution of Controlled Narcotics and Cambridge District Court for Possession of Buglarious Tools.
Stockwell was placed into custody and transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process.
