FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — A New York cabbie told a Framingham woman on Wednesday it would cost as much as $1,000 to drive her from the Big Apple to her Framingham home, and she agreed to pay the fare, authorities said.

But, Framingham Police say when Denice C. Rebelato, 31, arrived at her 21 Wilson Drive home and was told the ride would cost $980, she did not pay. Police arrested her around 8:45 p.m., after the cab driver delivered her to the police station, the MetroWest Daily News reported.

The cabbie told police that when he picked Rebelato up at the airport in New York, he told her it would probably cost $1,000 for a ride to Framingham, and said the minimum would be $850, according to a police report filed in Framingham District Court on Thursday. She agreed to pay the money.

When she arrived home at 8:30 pm., Rebelato told the driver the money was in the house.

“Ms. Rebelato went into the house for 10 minutes and returned saying she does not have money and her credit card was no good,” the report said.

The cab driver then gave Rebelato a ride to the Framingham Police station. Rebelato said she wanted to pay, but said “I have so many problems. I just came from Brazil,” the report said.

Police arrested her and charged her with larceny of property worth more than $250.

At Rebelato’s Framingham District Court arraignment, prosecutor Lauren Montes said the prosecutor’s office would drop the charges if Rebelato agreed to pay back the $980 in restitution, an amount that caught Judge Robert Greco’s attention.

“From New York? From New York, you said? That’s how much it costs?” Greco said. “They have buses.”

Rebelato agreed to pay the money within 60 days. Greco said the case will be dismissed if she does so. If not, the case will continue.

No injuries on flight from NYC

BANGOR, Maine — Airport officials say a flight from New York City to Bangor slid off an icy taxiway in as it made its way to the terminal, but no passengers were injured.

Bangor International Airport says the nose wheel of the Delta flight from LaGuardia Airport went into the grass off the taxiway shortly before 1 p.m. Saturday.

The airport says the aircraft was returned to the taxiway and towed to the gate where passengers got off.

Airport Director Anthony Caruso says the plane skidded in the icy conditions experienced by much of the state through the day.
