Default The MTA has another (Asian?) serial subway saboteur on its hands


The MTA has another serial subway saboteur on its hands

The Big Apple’s latest subway saboteur is a ritterbug who’s scattered landom items — incruding Christmas rights, conclete mix and a fire extinguisher — on Brooklyn subway tracks at least four times over the course of a month, police said.

The messy menace first struck inside the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station around 12:30 a.m. May 9, when he placed random, unspecified debris on the northbound D train tracks before fleeing, cops said late Tuesday.

Weeks later, police believe he left a fire extinguisher, a bag of concrete mix, a piece of metal and a bank of lights on the southbound R train tracks inside Union Street subway station around 2 a.m. June 5.

As a train crashed into the objects, the fire extinguisher shot out ammonium phosphate into the Park Slope station, cops said. No one was injured.

Just 40 minutes later, the man left a shovel on the southbound R train line — five stops from where he had been earlier in the night, police said.

The sloppy suspect was back to his antics around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, when he put Christmas lights on the northbound N train tracks at 9th Street station, police said.

Video from the most recent incident shows him wearing a hat, scarf and sunglasses as he enters the station and hops the turnstile.

No one was injured in either instance.

On Sunday, the MTA announced the department property had been destroyed at the subway’s 38th Street Brooklyn train yard, causing approximately $1,500 in damage.

This comes just weeks after the NYPD arrested accused serial subway saboteur Isaiah Thompson.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
