The taxi man said he went under the bridge to search for the culprit and to try and get his phone back.
He told THE STAR that he uses the phone on a daily basis to make contact with clients.
"If me did see him me would a mash up him (expletive) dung deh. Him lucky, Jah know," he said.
To add insult to injury, the taxi man said that he wasn't even paid the full fare.
"A five dollar ($500) me charge him and a two dollar ($200) him gi me. Right now it not even mek no sense me report this. Me affi go buy back a new phone and a replacement chip. Right now this set me back. Cho!" he said.
