A 54-year-old taxi driver was arrested Monday after it was found during a check by police in Athens that the meter of the cab had been tampered with.

The check was conducted by traffic police at the Liosion intercity bus station.

The suspect had allegedly rigged the machine so the fare displayed on the meter could be controlled remotely.

He appeared before a prosecutor on Monday.
