County Sheriff's deputies responded to Wheatfield after a Niagara County resident took a free ride.

They went to Alder Creek North for a charge of Theft of Services. A taxi driver says he picked up a person on Franklin St. in Buffalo and drove him to Wheatfield where that person was let inside the building by a unknown resident. 

The driver waited several minutes, but the passenger never returned back to his taxi to pay the fare.

Patrol tried to make contact numerous time by knocking on front and back doors of an apartment building and attempts to call a number went unanswered.

The total amount of the unpaid fare was $69.30.
