MDTA POLICE ARREST RAPE SUSPECT

DURING TRAFFIC STOP AT BWI AIRPORT

Subject Held without Bond

 

BALTIMORE, Md. (January 16, 2023) – Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police Officers arrested a Montgomery County man early Saturday morning during a traffic stop at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. On January 13, shortly after 2 a.m., an MDTA Police Officer assigned to the BWI Airport Detachment stopped a silver Dodge Ram on the inner roadway of the airport’s upper level. The inner roadway is a high pedestrian area, and traffic is limited to authorized vehicles only.

During the stop, officers identified the driver as 27-year-old Wilfredo Pineda of Silver Spring. Officers learned that Pineda was wanted on an open warrant through the Baltimore County Police Department for charges including second-degree rape and assault. Officers took Pineda into custody and transported him to the Jennifer Road Detention Center without incident.

Those charged with a crime are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

 

The Maryland Transportation Authority Police, a nationally accredited force, is the eighth-largest law enforcement agency in the State with more than 500 sworn and civilian law enforcement professionals. MDTA Police Officers provide law enforcement services at the MDTA’s highways, bridges, and tunnels, at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, and at the Port of Baltimore.
