A token booth clerk is under arrest after police say she was in on a robbery.

It happened on Saturday at around 11:30 a.m. at the 111th Street and Roosevelt Avenue subway station.

Police say Tracy King, 48, was found with her hands bound in tape.

They say she claimed a man approached her, asking to heat up his food in a utility room, and after letting him do so, he held her up at gunpoint.

Officials say the thief and his lookout made off with an undetermined amount of cash from the token booth.

However, police now say the token booth clerk was part of the plot.

King, who has worked for the MTA for 15 years, was taken into custody Wednesday morning and is charged with grand larceny, defrauding government and conspiracy.

Her alleged accomplices are still on the loose.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
