Beach Buggy taxi driver robbed at gunpoint, forced to drive around


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are searching for a couple of suspects they say pulled a gun on a taxi driver, and forced him to drive to different places in the area early Wednesday morning.

Wilmington police were notified of the crime around 6:30 a.m. They say it all started when a Beach Buggy Taxi driver picked up two men in his cab. After getting into the vehicle, police say the suspect in the front, passenger seat pulled a gun on the driver.

The suspect with the gun then demanded the cabby drive them to several locations in the area, finally ending up at the Roses on Carolina Beach Rd, according to police. That’s when they say the two men jumped out of the cab and took off.

No word on what the suspects got away with.
