Police say criminal element swept out of Andrew station
Boston Police report a nearly month-long operation with their MBTA counterparts has resulted in 24 arrests of alleged drug dealers and their minions in and around the Andrew stop on the Red Line:
Since July 6, 2011, this effort proactively targeted a criminal element who frequently utilized the station to arrive, enter and leave the Andrew Square area to conduct unlawful drug transactions.
In addition to the arrests, police say they seized significant amounts of heroin, crack, marijuana, prescription pills and money.
On Sunday, MBTA officers arrested what they said was a gun-packing fare jumper. Although he was not charged with any drug offenses at Andrew, his bail on a drug charge out of Chelsea was revoked.
