Police search for taxi hijackers



A Turner Transportation driver who was forced to drive two men to New York City a week ago has helped Maryland State Police come up with composite drawings of her two abductors.

Lisa Reigh picked the two men up at Town Pizza on Franklin Street in Hagerstown about 10:30 a.m. on Nov. 30. She took them to the International House of Pancakes in the Centre at Hagerstown.

The men said they would be needing a ride to the Baltimore area about 45 minutes later, so Reigh called her dispatcher to plan it.

Since the trip would cost about $100 or $110, the driver had to set it up in advance.

When she picked the men up at IHOP a second time, she got on Interstate 81 to get to Interstate 70. At that time the men - one in the front seat, one in the back - told her to keep going north on I-81 and ordered her at knifepoint to take them to New York.

Once there, the men got out of the cab and Reigh returned to Hagerstown, police said.
