A 24-year-old man from Midland is facing transportation fraud charges after not paying his taxi fare.
On Saturday afternoon, a local taxi company got in touch with Midland Police to report the man who fled from the taxi without paying. They said the man was dropped off at the back entrance of a downtown store and said he’d return to pay his fare but he did not.
Police found the man, who was on two probation orders, and he is now facing charges. He will appear in Midland court on July 13th.
