On September 15, 2022 at approximately 8:10PM a Transit Police officer was working a paid detail relative to the MBTA Bus Diversion at Copley Station. While there the officer was approached by a citizen who informed the officer a male was inside the Copley station actively spray painting the walls. The reporting party provided a detailed description of the offending male. The officer immediately proceeded in that direction and came upon a male, later identified as Jeremiah Springer, 22, of Roxbury who matched the description provided. Springer was walking way from the station and shaking a can of spray paint. The officer engaged Springer in conversation and subsequently determined there were several warrants in existence for Springer's arrest issued out of Boston Municipal Court for Assault & Battery w/a Dangerous Weapon, Resisting Arrest, Interfering with a Police Officer, Trespassing, Carrying a Dangerous Weapon, Possession w/Intent to Distribute Controlled Narcotics, West Roxbury DC for Assault w/Dangerous Weapon, Intimidation of a Witness and Cambridge DC for Larceny and Malicious Destruction of Property.
Springer was placed into custody and transported to TPD-HQ for the arrest booking process. Springer will also be charged with Tagging. (The only legible words of the Tagging had "GANG" in it.)
