It's one of those crimes that makes you scratch your head. An armed man robbed a cab driver, then called another cab to pick him up.

Jacksonville Police say it happened Sunday just before 10 P.M. on 400 Bayshore Blvd. Officers say 16 year old Shaquille Devon McPherson got into the first cab drivers car, showed his handgun and then robbed him.

Then, authorities say, McPherson got out of the cab and called another one to pick him up in the Brentwood Ave. area.

When officers got there, they saw McPherson carrying a concealed handgun in his waistband. He was arrested and placed in the Onslow County Jail on a $78,000 bond.
