Magistrates court tells long term taxi bilker “things catch up with you” and orders her to pay up

A Magistrates Court judge told a long term taxi bilker “things catch up with you” and ordered her to pay a bill totalling £132.20. Paige Smith, 20 years-old from Grimsby, was given the order to pay after she admitted to bilking taxis with offences dating back more than two years.

She admitted to dodging three fares in the Grimsby area which come to a total of £47.20. Ms Paige also admitted to failing to surrender to bail at court on 25th July 2017.

The courts noted that the bilker was only a youth when she committed the offences and skipped bail in 2017. After being arrested on warrant, Smith was brought before Grimsby Magistrates' Court in custody. According to Grimsby Live , the magistrates said: "The offences go back in time but these things catch up with you." Smith who is unemployed was told to pay £47.20 compensation and £85 costs. Delighted with the result, Smith said: "Did I just get a fine? Thank you ever so much. Thank you."
