Suspect Nabbed After Trying To Skip Fare

(AP) For a fugitive riding public transportation, it didn't pay to be cheap. A North Carolina bank robbery suspect is in custody after he was caught taking a free ride on Baltimore's light rail.

A ticket on the train costs $1.60. But the Maryland Transit Administration said Isaac Ray Dunn, 58, didn't have one when an MTA police officer asked passengers to show their tickets on Thursday afternoon at the North Linthicum stop south of the city.

After arresting Dunn for failing to buy a ticket, police did a check for outstanding warrants and found out he's wanted for a bank robbery in Charlotte, N.C.

Police turned Dunn over to U.S. Marshals.
