Baltimore Police and Baltimore County Police detectives say they are investigating a string of robberies in which carjackers impersonated ride-hailing drivers and then robbed passengers.

The Baltimore Police Department said in a news release Tuesday that suspects in multiple robberies used apps to carjack drivers and then pick up their customers, forcing victims to hand over money from ATMs or Cash App, a mobile payment service.

Police said officers had made arrests and are working with ride-hailing companies to reverse payments. Investigations into the robberies are ongoing, the release said.

Baltimore Police shared a flyer telling users of ride-hailing apps to check the car and driver’s information before getting into a vehicle, including details like the make and model, color and license plate. If there are too many people in the car or something else doesn’t seem right, customers should not get into the vehicle, police advised. Drivers should use caution when picking up fares for three or more people after dark, police warned.
