From the Daily News:
A phony hack was nabbed at John F. Kennedy Airport Monday afternoon by two cops who had recognized the suspect from previous arrests, a Port Authority Police Department spokesman said.
Odalis De Los Andeles, 47, was trying to hustle unsuspecting travelers at Terminal 4 around 2 p.m., offering them cab rides without having proper Taxi and Limousine Commission credentials, PAPD Spokesman Al Della Fave said.
“He’s one of the frequent hustlers,” Fave said. “He’s been arrested more than 20 times.”
Plainclothes PAPD Officers Tom Koster and Paul Pogozelski were scouting out the turf on the arrivals deck when they spotted De Los Andeles.
De Los Andeles - who was known to charge upwards of $100 for a ride to Manhattan that would normally cost a flat-rate of $45 - was charged with illegal solicitation of ground transportation, resisting arrest, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct, Della Fave said.
