Commuter rail officials probe possible scrap metal theft
By Noah Bierman, Globe Staff
An employee of Boston's commuter rail system was suspended this week while authorities investigate whether he stole scrap metal from the railroad.
If proven, the employee, or any others involved, face disciplinary measures that could include termination, said Rich Davey, deputy general manager of Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Company. The MBCR runs the commuter lines under contract with the MBTA.
Davey would not name the suspended employee. The matter has been referred to MBTA police.
Davey said the company and MBTA police are also investigating the theft of copper from two MBCR rail yards.
