Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Police arrested a Charlestown man over the weekend for shoplifting at Boston's South Station. The man had already had two warrants out for his arrest in regards to several other shoplifting incidents, police said.
Transit Police on Saturday, July 5, responded to the commuter rail station around 4:40 p.m. on a report that a man had just stolen food from the station's location of Au Bon Pain. Officers approached Scott Hilton, 54, of Charlestown, who had been carrying a salad in a bag and had admitted to taken the food, Transit police said Monday.
Officers then discovered Hilton had two warrants for his arrest, one issued out of Malden District Court for shoplifting (third offense) and the other issued out of Quincy District Court for two counts of shoplifting and for trespassing, according to the report.
Hilton was arrested on scene Saturday and transported to Transit Police headquarters for booking.
