Man Tries To Pay Cab Driver With Fake Bill, Leaves Wallet Behind

DENVER (CBS4) – Denver police are trying to track down a man who they say tried to pay a taxi driver with a counterfeit bill.

According to police, on Wednesday evening, after a taxi ride, a man paid the driver with what the driver believed to be a counterfeit bill.

“After the taxi driver issued the passenger his change, the man began to exit the taxi, but not without grabbing the bill he paid with back from the driver,” police said in a Facebook statement. “However, upon exiting the cab, the suspect unknowingly dropped his wallet and the taxi driver recovered it, reporting the crime to DPD.”

Police found some humor in the crime and included the following in the Facebook post:

“SPECIAL MESSAGE: Javarris Smith, age 23, we have your wallet. You can go to any police district office to discuss the matter.”
