Crime Stoppers: Maple Ridge police seek help with taxi robber
Crime Stoppers needs your help to catch the suspect who terrified a taxi driver and stole a cab on January 27.
The incident happened at 1 a.m. in Maple Ridge, when the taxi driver received a call to pick someone up near Waresley Street and 116 Avenue.
When he arrived a man sat in the front seat and asked to be taken to 207 Avenue.
The man then pulled out a handgun and demanded money. The driver managed to escape, but the thief took off with the vehicle.
