BOSTON – A warrant recently unsealed in U.S. District Court details the
seizure of radio transmission equipment of a pirate radio station
broadcasting from Brockton. 

The seizure, by federal officials on March 1, 2013, occurred at the
station’s last known address on Rutland Street in Brockton. The pirate radio
station is alleged to have been using frequency 91.7 MHz without a license
from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). A civil action was brought
seeking forfeiture of the equipment because it was allegedly used in
violation of federal law.
