Point of Entry Policing-Forest Hills

Robert Pimental
On October 21, 2014 at approximately 4:32pm Transit Police officers were conducting Point of Entry Policing at the MBTA's Forest Hills station. While there they observed a male, later identified as Robert Pimental, 44, of Hyde Park fare evade by "piggybacking" in behind a paying customer. Officers approached Pimental for the purpose of issuing a citation and subsequently discovered there was a warrant in existence for Pimental's arrest issued out of Dorchester District Court for Conspiracy, Attempt to Commit a Crime and Insurance Fraud. Pimental was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
