Police are appealing for information from the public with help in tracing a taxi driver who dropped off four people in the Paisley area in the early hours of Sunday, 13th January 2019.
The driver picked up two men and two women in and around the Bath Street and Hope Street area of Glasgow City Centre in a dark coloured Skoda Octavia taxi.
He then took them to Paisley and dropped the group off at an address in High Calside shortly after 3.00am. The vehicle had a taxi sign attached to the roof.
The two men who were picked up are described as being black, aged in their early 20’s, and they spoke with North East English accents. Both women are white and aged 18 years.
Detective Constable Grant Spy, of Renfrewshire and Inverclyde CID, said: “I am keen to trace the man driving the taxi as he may have information which can assist our ongoing enquiry. I would like to emphasise that this individual is not considered to be a suspect and is being sought as a witness only.
“Anyone with any knowledge of his identity should get in touch with me as soon as possible via 101.”
Detective Constable Spy, added: “I am aware that one of the men sat in the front passenger seat of the taxi and the other man sat in the rear, directly behind the driver.
“The route from Glasgow to Paisley would have been via the M8, exiting at Arkleston. He would have driven into Paisley town centre via Renfrew Road, Mill Street, Gordon Street, Causeyside Street, Calside and then into High Calside. After dropping the people off at the address he left and went back to the motorway using the same route in reverse.
“Anyone with information is asked to contact Paisley CID via telephone number 101, quoting incident number 0751 of 13th January 2019. Alternatively you can call CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 where details can be given in confidence.”
