Woman racks up $980 cab fare from JFK Airport

Posted: Updated:

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts woman who took a cab from New York City to her home outside Boston was arrested after she couldn't pay the nearly $1,000 fare.

Denise Rebelato was charged with larceny over $250 on Wednesday after the driver called police.

Authorities say the Rebelato, 31, grabbed the cab at JFK International Airport and had it take her to Framingham, about 15 miles west of Boston.

Upon arrival, she went inside to get the $980 fare. She came out 10 minutes later and said she didn't have the money.

The MetroWest Daily News reports that Rebelato agreed to a deal at her arraignment Thursday in which charges will be dropped if she pays the money within 30 days.

The judge wondered why she didn't take a bus.
