Police have identified the woman, but alack: still no violin.


The MBTA Transit Police are looking for a woman who they say left South Station with an expensive violin this past weekend—the only problem is, the violin doesn’t belong to her.

The instrument, valued at $40,000, was lost around 12:04 a.m. Saturday. A woman wearing a North Quincy Red Raiders sweatshirt picked up the violin, police say, and as of Tuesday afternoon, it has yet to be recovered.

Anyone with information pertaining to the woman’s identity is encouraged to contact MBTA Transit Police’s Criminal Investigation Unit at (617) 222-1050, or text 873873.
