New York City police have arrested a cab driver who started out as a hero.
The cab driver turned in an infant to a Corona firehouse, claiming his passenger abandoned the in his back seat. He told cops a male rider asked him the pull over so he could make a phone call and never returned for the child.
Now police say he is lying.
NYPD said the driver never had a passenger in the cab with him. He took the baby to the fire department alone.
It turned out the scheme was to help a Bronx father who said he was not able to take care of the six-month-old.
Police arrested the cab driver, the baby’s aunt and the cab driver’s roommate for all playing a role in abandoning this girl.
Police are still looking for the baby’s parents.
