John Monroe made it too easy for the Massachusetts Transit Police to arrest him on his four outstanding arrest warrants. Monroe 32 of Roxbury Massachusetts was wanted in the four different Boston courts including, Boston Municipal Court, Cambridge District Court, Roxbury Municipal Court and Brighton Municipal Court. He was wanted on charges ranging from theft to drugs to motor vehicle crimes.
On Monday night Monroe was standing in the doorway of the MBTA train not allowing the doors to close. The conductor used the intercom to ask him to move. Police were present and asked him to move. He did not. He was arrested by Transit Police where it was learned he had the arrest warrants. Police said he had no explanation for drawing the attention to himself.
A warrant allows police officers to arrest on the spot. In this case the warrants were default warrants meaning that Monroe had missed court or defaulted. Once he is brought to court he will have his warrants removed and the Assistant District Attorney may request a cash bail. If Mr. Monroe cannot post the bail he will be held in the Suffolk County House of Correction.
