Fare evader arrested on warrants

Omar Moheedin
On October 8, 2015 at approximately 4:20pm Transit Police officers were conducting Point of Entry Policing at the MBTA's South Station when their attention was drawn to a male, later identified as Omar Moheedin, 21, of Everett. Moheedin cut in front of a plainclothe TPD officer in order to "piggyback" in behind a paying customer. Officers approached Moheedin, identified themselves and requested identification for purposes of issuing a citation. Moheedin was verbally combative and furnished a false name and date of birth. A determined officer subsequently discovered Moheedin's true identity which revealed several warrants in existence for his arrest issued out of Concord District Court for Operating a Motor Vehicle without a License, Negligent Operation of a MV and various other motor vehicle violations. Moheedin was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
