2 arrests made in thefts from MBTA lots
ATTLEBORO, Mass.—Getting arrested once for allegedly helping steal catalytic converters from vehicles in MBTA parking lots apparently didn't send the right message to a New Bedford woman.
Tina Fager was one of two women arrested Wednesday for allegedly stealing the emissions control devices from vehicles parked in Attleboro and Sharon lots.
Fager was arrested with her husband last month for allegedly stealing catalytic converters from cars parked in MBTA lots on the South Shore.
Police say Fager and Jamie Neto were pulled over Wednesday after being caught on surveillance.
Fager was ordered held on $25,000 cash bail and Neto was ordered held on $15,000 cash bail at their arraignment Thursday.
Police say the catalytic converters are sold for the precious metals they contain. There have been more than 100 similar thefts.
