Darren Doyle, story:
The failure to pay a taxi cab bill resulted in the arrest of a Brownsville man yesterday after a felony arrest warrant was discovered on multiple burglary charges.
Sheriff Shane Doyle said he responded to a complaint call from an Elizabethtown taxi driver who was waiting in the Minit Mart parking lot on Friday, August 3, 2018 around 1pm. According to Sheriff Doyle, the driver said he had driven Robert "Bobby" Thacker (28), Brownsville, from Hardin Memorial Hospital in E-town to Brownsville. The driver reportedly said that Thacker promised that his girlfriend would pay the bill, which was around $125, once they arrived in Brownsville.
Doyle reported that Thacker said once they arrived, not only did the girlfriend not pay, she was nowhere to be found and had apparently moved out of her apartment and wouldn't answer multiple phone calls.
The Sheriff said that through the investigation, Thacker was discovered to have an outstanding felony warrant out of Louisville for Criminal Mischief 1st Degree, Burglary 3rd Degree, and Possession of Burglary Tools. He was also charged with theft of services.
Thacker was arrested by Doyle and lodged in the Hart County Jail.
