What was going on in Newton Yesterday??

As I was driving down Commonwealth in the morning about 5 policemen on motorcycles, sirens blaring, were leading the way for 2 Peter Pan buses full of people.  I looked up at the bus – didn’t seem to be tricked out for rock stars or the like.    Then later on in the day, as I was going down Centre Street, 3 motorcycle police – again with the sirens going, were paving the way for a non-descript maroon minivan.   I am definitely curious – no sporting events in Newton that I know of, no rock concerts….can’t see why they would be riding 2 buses full of convicts through town.   Going to check with my friend Jeff, head of the auxiliary police – bet he’ll know!  But if anyone can enlighten, please do!
