Point of Entry Policing nets person wanted for Kidnapping
On September 28, 2014 at approximately 11:25am a Transit Police officer on patrol at the MBTA's Quincy Center station had her attention drawn to a female, later identified as Tina Lunn, 37, of Braintree. Lunn was smoking a cigarette in the entrance to the station where there are conspicuously posted No Smoking signs. The officer approached Lunn to remind her of the laws prohibiting smoking on MBTA property. Lunn furnished a false name and date of birth to the officer, however the name Lunn provided belonged to a real person who had a warrant out for her arrest. (We know we were thinking the same thing !!) When informed there was a warrant out for her arrest Lunn did not come clean with her misleading information but rather continued through the entire booking process as her new assumed name. Eventually officers discovered Lunn's true identity were it was revealed there were several warrants in existence for her arrest issued from Hingham District Court for Assault & Battery w/a Dangerous Weapon 3 counts, Kidnapping and Possession of Chemical Mace w/out an FID card. Additonally, there was a warrant for Larceny Over 250.00 issued from Salem District Court. Lunn will also be charged with False name during Booking process and was issued a smoking citation.
