Frequent Flyer

Rebecca Donahue
On October 16, 2014 at approximately 9:30am a Transit Police officer conducting Point of Entry Policing at the MBTA's Savin Hill station did observe a female, later identified as Rebecca Donahue, 42, of Dorchester fare evade by "piggybacking" in behind a paying customer. This is not the TPD's first encounter with Donahue, back in March of this year Transit Police detectives arrested Donahue for drug violations. (see posting here)

The officer approached Donahue for the purpose of issuing a citation and subsequently discovered there was a warrant for her arrest issued from Dorchester District Court for (yep !!! you guessed it the drug arrest back in March) for Distribution of a Controlled Class C Substance and Conspiracy to Violate the Drug Laws and from Quincy District Court for Violation of the Drug Laws. It was also discovered this was not Donahue's first time fare evading. Donahue was issued a citation and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
