Second Muni sting nabs fare evaders

Officers conducting their second Muni sting did brisk business nabbing fare evaders, but didn’t catch any violent offenders.

During the Ingleside Police Station’s second Operation Safe Muni, undercover officers issued 15 citations within an hour and a half at 30th and Mission – mostly for fare evasion, Capt. David Lazar said of the Thursday operation. 

Officers conducted the first sting operation after 11-year-old Hatim Mansori was stabbed on the 49 in early September. In that sting, which lasted nearly six hours, 20 people were ticketed for minor infractions.
