Syracuse Man Carrying $5,000 Cash Won’t Pay Cab Fare
On the hunt for cheap cigarettes, a Syracuse man was arrested earlier this week after he refused to pay his cab fare.
After hailing the cab, the 68-year-old Northside resident asked to be taken to a store to get cigarettes. He left the first store empty-handed and requested to go to another store claiming they wanted too much for their smokes. Empty-handed again after the next store, the man refused to pay the cabbie's $12 fare. Police were called and the man was arrested. The kicker? He was loaded - carrying more than $5,000 in cash on him.
