MBTA cites Salem woman for fare evasion

SALEM — A local woman was issued a citation by MBTA Transit Police this week as part of a continuing crackdown on fare evasion.

Rosa Madrano, 43, of Salem was stopped Monday at 2 p.m. at the Chinatown MBTA station by officers conducting fare evasion enforcement, according to the T. She also had an arrest warrant out of Salem District Court, the T said.

Madrano “piggybacked” behind a paying customer to enter through the fare gates, according to Transit Police, who issued two videos of the incident.

The Salem News was not able to reach Madrano.

In 2012, the MBTA issued 4,753 citations, a 40 percent increase over 2011.
