Man wanted in different states draws attention to himself by smoking.

Peter Moniz
On April 25, 2017 at approximately 6:45pm Transit Police officers were at the MBTA's Mass Ave. Station conducting Point of Entry Policing. While there they had their attention drawn to a male, later identified as Peter Moniz,  38, of Fall River. Moniz was smoking from a cigarette within conspicuously displayed No Smoking signs. Officers approached Moniz to issue a citation and subsequently discovered he was wanted in Sanford, Maine and Dover, New Hampshire for Financial Crimes.

Both warrants were fully extraditable and Moniz was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. Moniz will be arraigned on Fugitive from Justice charges sometime today.
