The cab driver told police he picked up two men who matched the descriptions of 48-year-old Richard Matt and 34-year-old David Sweat at Broad and Vine streets around 4:15 a.m. Thursday.
The taxi dropped the men off at 30th Street Station in downtown Philadelphia.
The cabbie worked two more fares and then called 911, police said. The driver told police the men he dropped off at 30th Street Station looked like Sweat and Matt.
The whole “two more fares and then called 911” thing looks bad, but it makes sense. They struggle with common sense communication. The only time a Philly cabbie has ever looked me in the face is when they turn around to say that they’re so sorry but their card machine is definitely not fake broken, and they want cash.
File under: couldn’t have done this if it were Uber.
UPDATE: Wasn’t them, just some other weirdos.
