DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Police say they’ve arrested a Des Moines man suspected of robbing of a taxi driver after he left his ID card in the cab.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/29m6GqD ) that 34-year-old Landon Paul Dawson is charged with second-degree robbery.

The cab driver told police he picked up Dawson from a casino around 3:30 a.m. Friday, who said he had “hit it big” and wanted change for a $100 bill so he could give the driver a big tip.

The driver says when he pulled out $50, Dawson grabbed the money and ran.

Officers say they found a city bus card with Dawson’s name on in the backseat of the cab and promptly arrested him at his home.

Dawson remained jailed Saturday and could not be reached for comment.
