If a customer got in the wrong taxi he or she might end up at the wrong end of a knife.
Fuerza Pública officers said they detained a taxi driver on the complaints of three persons who said they had been robbed by the driver.
The crimes took place south of the San José downtown. Police said the man was a fully licensed taxi driver who was associated with a prominent cooperative.
Police said victims identified the driver and that he was remanded to the flagrancy court for immediate processing.
