Malden woman arrested for Fare Evasion

Kelley Capobianco
On May 9, 2016 at approximately 9:20AM Transit Police officers assigned to the North District were conducting Point of Entry Policing at the MBTA's Malden Center Station. While there they had their attention drawn to a female, later identified as Kelley Capobianco, 32, of Malden, who fare evaded by "piggybacking" in behind a paying customer. Officers approached Capobianco for the purpose of issuing a citation. However Capobianco furnished several fictitious names in an attempt to mislead the officers. Officers explained that failure to identify oneself after fare evading could lead to arrest. Capobianco still refused to reveal her true identity and was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. During the booking process it was discovered there were several warrants in existence for Capobianco's arrest issued from Malden District Court for various drug violations.
