A woman was arrested Tuesday after failing to pay for a taxi ride to a Falls Street home.
Sincere R. Wiley, 21, 145 Green St., Lockport, was charged with theft of services about 1 p.m. Tuesday, according to Falls police.
A taxi driver called police to a Falls Street home. He told officers he picked up Wiley on 10th Street and she asked to be taken to 24th Street but on the way said to instead take her to Falls Street. When they arrived, Wiley told the driver she had no money and she'd get some cash from someone inside the home.
The driver said he waited outside the home for 45 minutes and then called police about the $25.50 fare.
Police knocked on the door and spoke to a woman who said Wiley came in the home, asked for $5 to pay for her cab but when the woman said she didn't have the money, Wiley instead laid down and took a nap on a couch.
Officers were allowed inside the home to look for Wiley. They found her hiding under blankets on a couch. Officers asked her if she had money to pay for the cab ride and she replied, "If I did Ida done paid that (expletive)."
