ON THE BEAT WITH MPD: JOINT OPERATION LEADS TO MULTIPLE ARRESTS ON LIGHT RAIL SYSTEM

The following is a brief summary of the work the METRO Police Department does every day to keep our community and transit system safe:

On Jan. 11, the METRO Police Department’s Transit Marshal Unit performed a joint operation with other local law enforcement to target criminal activity on METRO light rail vehicles and platforms. During the operation, plain clothes and undercover officers rode rail vehicles southbound. While riding the train, the officers identified narcotics activities and decided to implement a buy bust. Uniformed METRO Police Transit Marshals assisted in completing the operation, which led to multiple arrests and charges of Possession of Controlled Substance and Delivery of Controlled Substance.

On Jan. 18, the METRO Police Department’s Transit Marshal Unit continued the joint operation and again targeted unlawful activities on the Authority’s light rail vehicles and platforms. Plain clothes and undercover officers developed a two-squad deployment that consisted of a North Squad and a South Squad, riding multiple trains. This operation was positive and effective, leading to additional arrests and charges of Delivery of a Controlled Substance involving multiple suspects.
