Cops: Suspect Vomited In Taxi, Then Stole It

By  | 

Police are searching for a suspect who allegedly vomited in a taxi cab before stealing it.

According to CBS station KOVR in Sacramento, Calif., a taxi driver picked up a man and a woman around 1 a.m. on Sunday and drove them to a downtown Sacramento location. The male passenger proceeded to throw up in the cab.

The police told the Sacramento Bee that the driver pulled over to argue with the suspect, and the two began to fight in the car. They then stepped outside the vehicle and continued to fight. The woman got out of the cab and paid cash for the ride.

That's when the suspect jumped into the driver's seat and drove off. The woman ran once she realized what happened.

The California Highway Patrol found the car later on Sunday, but has not located the thief.

Police described the suspect as an Asian American male in his late 30s with a thin build.
