A taxi cab driver unintentionally became the getaway car driver for a man who had just burglarized an east-side home.
Police say the burglar stole $2000 worth of electronics, including a 42-inch plasma screen television, from Uriah Caldera’s home on Cooper St. before calling a Yellow Cab to pick him up and drop him off a few blocks away....
Police were able to contact the cab driver who told them where the [sic] dropped the suspect off, but a search of the area found nothing.
No word on how well the customer tipped, if at all.
Bonus strangeness: the name "Uriah". How often do you see that nowadays?
