On October 29, 2019 at approximately 5:30PM members of the Transit Police Crime Suppression Team were on patrol at the MBTA's Downtown Crossing station Temple Street entrance. While there they had their attention drawn to a male, later identified as Jonathan Holcomb, 42 of Everett. Holcomb was smoking a cigarette and obstructing the entrance way. Officers approached Holcomb and subsequently discovered there were several warrants in existence for his arrest issued from South Boston District Court for Breaking & Entering a Building for Felony Purposes, Being a Common & Notorious Thief and Assault with a Dangerous Weapon.
Holcomb was placed into custody and transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process.
