Meter running? Suspect takes taxi to home invasion; asks driver to wait

RED DEER, Alta. — RCMP in central Alberta are looking for a suspect who took a taxi to a home invasion and asked the driver to wait for him.

Red Deer Mounties say a man took a cab on Saturday night to a mobile home and knocked on the door.

When a resident opened the door, the man punched him several times before stealing cash, a cellphone and some cigarettes.

He then returned to the taxi which dropped him off downtown.

A police search of the area did not locate the suspect.

No word on whether the meter was running the whole time.
