Cab drivers arrested on fraud charges


Three taxi drivers, aged 52, 55 and 59, were arrested Tuesday in a police sweep in the area of Petralona and the the KTEL Liosion bus terminal.

The 59-year-old was detained on charges of using counterfeit money, while the 55-year-old is accused of tampering with his taximeter.

The 52-year-old was nabbed for using a fake driver’s license.

All three appeared before an Athens prosecutor.
