BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — When you think of fare hopping, you probably think of someone jumping the turnstile on the subway in New York City, or perhaps hiding from the conductor on Septa's R5 in Philadelphia. But it turns out, someone attempted to ride Tri-Rail without paying.
And this wasn't his first time.
Boca Raton Police arrested Scott Weinstein and charged him with transit fare evasion after a security guard on Tri-Rail asked him for a ticket. He allegedly didn't have one. And police say Weinstein had been warned and fined for the same offense before.
Jail records reveal that Weinstein has been arrested for theft, probation violation, and failing to appear in court previously.
He received a “notice to appear” for this latest alleged violation.
