The St. Thomas Police are searching for multiple suspects in two separate incidents involving transportation fraud.
The first incident took place on February 19, 2015 at 11:00pm in the area of Greenfields Variety Store on Confederation Drive. The suspect advised the cab driver that he required the use of the ATM inside the store to pay for his fare. Once out of the vehicle he fled behind the store failing to pay his outstanding debt. He is described as being approximately 19 years of age, thin with blonde hair wearing a beige jacket.
The second incident took place on February 20, 2015 at 3:20am in the area of Lake Margaret Trail. In this instance there were five males who fled the cab without paying for their ride. No descriptions were available.
The public is reminded that when this happens it is considered a criminal offence. The outstanding fare has to come out of the driver’s pay not the company.
Anyone who has any information regarding these incidents are asked to please contact police.
