On January 28, 2019 at approximately 6:55PM members of the Transit Police Crime Suppression Team were at the MBTA's South Station Red Line fare gates conducting fare evasion enforcement. While there they observed a female, later identified as Alexandria Mullen, 34, of New Bedford fare evade by "piggybacking" in behind a paying customer. Officers approached Mullen for the purpose of issuing a citation and subsequently discovered there were two warrants in existence for Mullen's arrest issued from New Bedford District Court for Felony Receiving Stolen Property & Misdemeanor Larceny Under 1,200.00.
Mullen was placed into custody and transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process.
