Four suspects are now facing weapons and drugs charges

Newton Patch

NEWTON, Mass. — More than 20 members of the Newton Police Department were honored last week at City Hall for their involvement in the Sept. 26 incident in Newton Centre where a 16-year-old male was spotted with a gun on a Green Line MBTA train.

At a ceremony in the Mayor's office on Thursday, Oct. 11, Interim Police Chief Howard Mintz and Mayor Setti Warren offered commendations and special recognitions related to the arrest of four suspects who are now facing weapons and drugs charges.

"I think many of us enjoy the comforts of Newton, enjoy all the benefits of it...because it is so safe and because you make it so safe," Mayor Warren said during the ceremony. "When I heard about this I was absolutely thrilled and proud, not only as mayor, but as a citizen."
