Ridge Meadows RCMP looking for public's help finding 3 suspects in hoodies who didn't pay their fare
Police are looking for help finding three 20-somethings in hoodies who flashed a gun instead of paying their fare for a cab ride ending in Pitt Meadows, B.C., early Sunday.
The trio had been picked up by the cab at approximately 3:10 a.m. PT Sunday morning in the 2100 block of Fraser Ave. in Port Coquitlam.
The driver dropped them off 10 minutes later on 191 Street near 124 Ave. in Pitt Meadows, and asked for the fare.
One of the men "produced a handgun and the trio walked away toward a group of townhomes," according to a release from Ridge Meadows RCMP.
The driver was not hurt.
Police responded with dogs trying to find the suspects but weren't successful, and now Ridge Meadows RCMP is looking for the public's help.

- A white man in his 20s, approximately five-foot nine-inches tall with medium build, wearing a white hoody.
- A white man in his 20s, approximately five-foot nine-inches tall with a thin build, and short buzz-cut hair, wearing a black hoody.
- A white woman in her 20s, five-foot nine-inches tall with a heavy build, wearing a black hoody.
