Police: Vomiting vandal throws up in cab then steals it
Crime

SACRAMENTO -Sacramento police are looking for the man who allegedly threw up in a cab then made off with it early Sunday morning.

According to spokeswoman Michelle Gigante of the Sacramento Police Dept., the cab picked up the puking pilferer and a woman in the area of 16th and Q St. shortly before 1 a.m. As the driver was taking the pair to their destination, the man threw up in the back seat.

The man then started an argument with the driver over the cab fare, at which point the driver and both passengers exited the cab, said Gigante.

Then, as the woman was paying the fare, the sickly sneak thief jumped into the vacant driver's seat and sped away, Gigante said.

Following her accomplice's departure, the woman fled on foot, said Gigante.

The cab driver notified the authorities of the incident and the cab was recovered later the same day.
