Lyft driver accused of stealing passenger's credit card, charging more than $1K

Lyft driver accused of stealing passenger's credit card, charging more than $1K


Here are three ways to submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers and possibly get a cash reward. Tallahassee Democrat


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A Lyft driver is being accused of stealing one of his passenger’s credit cards and using it to make over $1,000 in purchases.

Babar Ahmed, 21, faces charges of grand theft, fraudulent use of a credit card and personal identification information and petty theft. He was arrested Tuesday and posted $7,500 bail Sunday.

Ahmed was hired through the rideshare service on May 29. When the victim went inside her home to retrieve something she’d forgotten, she left her purse in his SUV.

The next day she noticed several unusual charges, including purchases at CVS Pharmacy, Publix, Super Lube, Dillards and various gas stations. She also noticed $60 cash taken from her wallet.

Leon County Sheriff’s Office investigators found video surveillance of nearly every transaction listed by the victim as fraudulent. In them, Ahmed is the individual making the transaction, according to LCSO.


A clerk at Dillards recognized Ahmed as someone who frequented the store. She and the victim were able to pick him out of a photo lineup.

Lyft did not immediately return a request for comment.
