Bend Police are dealing with another robbery case.  This one happened around 11 pm on Wednesday and involved a man riding in a tax cab.  Bend Police say the suspect, 25 year old Robert Farnsworth of Bend told the driver he didn't have the money for the fare with him and that he needed to go inside his home to get it. 

 

He gave the driver his ID as collateral and went inside the home.  But instead of coming back with cash he came back with a gun instead and asked the cab driver for his ID back. 

 

Lt. Chris Carney with Bend Police spoke with 1110 KBND news Thursday morning.
 

"This is probably a little more uncommon but it does happen- the person doesn't have the money -  agrees to allow the cab driver to hold onto his i.d. as he goes in to get the money.   - then comes back with a gun - it's an air gun, but the person doesn't know that."
 
It turns out the gun was an air gun, but looked close to the real thing.  The cab driver got away safely.  Bend Police Arrested Farnsworth and charged him with Robbery 11, menacing, theft of services and delivery of a controlled substance in connection to a warrant out of Wyoming.
