Medford man indicted on charges he printed up thousands of counterfeit T passes

Casey Kolenda, arrested this past spring on charges he used a magnetic "skimmer" and large numbers of regular CharlieCards to create at least 3,000 bogus monthly Link Passes, was formally indicted by a grand jury yesterday for the alleged forgeries. Officials estimate the cards cost the T $225,000 in lost revenue.

Innocent, etc.

even has a door from the street level where you can get up to the Orange Line for free. It's supposed to be only an exit for passengers from the Orange Line, but there's nothing preventing anyone from entering.
