When he was taken into custody, the arresting officer found 20 to 25 bus passes in his pockets. They were of different types, including some earmarked for seniors and the disabled.

Washington Ave., Tuesday night or Wednesday morning and got away with money from a cash box as well as more than $7,000 worth of bus tickets. The office had been locked Tuesday afternoon.
