Wanted Arlington man caught fare evading by TPD

Robert O'Brien
On November 4, 2019 at approximately 6:40PM members of the Transit Police Crime Suppression Team were on patrol at the MBTA's Park Street Station Red Line. While there they had their attention drawn to a male, later identified as Robert O'Brien, 49, of Arlington. O'Brien fare evaded by "piggybacking" in behind a paying patron. Officers approached O'Brien for the purpose of issuing a citation and subsequently discovered O'Brien had several warrants in existence for his arrest issued from Cambridge District Court for Arson, Breaking & Entering in the Night Time, Disorderly Conduct and Motor Vehicle violations. O'Brien was placed into custody and transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process.

media inquiries should be directed to Superintendent Richard Sullivan at
