Plainclothes transit police patrolling the C train platform noticed the teen beat the fare and approached her.


A police spokesman said the girl was not able to provide them with ID, prompting them to arrest her.

Once they began to search her, however, they found an unloaded revolver in the teen's bag.

The teen was charged for skipping the fare and criminal possession of a weapon.
