Petty MBTA crimes net wanted criminals

MBTA Transit Police are apparently flabbergasted at the lack of concern displayed by wanted criminals.

“Even though we are on the verge of Labor Day Weekend 2013, it feels more like Ground Hog Day!” the department posted today on its blog.

“We at tpdnews were actually naive enough to believe folks would stridently adhere to our advice of how NOT to get arrested on the MBTA. … As it turns out folks are simply not heeding our advice and doing their own thing.”

The post was prompted by three T arrests Wednesday.

Nathan Estey, 18, of Boston, was arrested at 2 a.m. at Back Bay station for loitering and was found to have a warrant out for his arrest for disorderly conduct and assault and battery, police said.

Hollyann Johnson, 23 of Plainville, was arrested Wednesday night at Fields Corner station for piggybacking, and was found to have a warrant out for her arrest for larceny.

Earlier that night, Collin Anderson, 24 of Dorchester, fare evaded by “piggybacking” in behind a paying customer, according to transit police.

“YOU GUESSED IT !!!!!,” the department wrote.

A warrant for Anderson’s arrest had been issued from West Roxbury District Court for violation of the commonwealth’s drug laws.
