In read below news and I came across below sentence. I want to know exact meaning of this sentence.
"A 22-year-old cab driver who robbed people after offering them shared rides, and got his girlfriend to sit in the taxi as a decoy passenger, was arrested on Thursday with two more accomplices."
a) Can It mean Simple past.
Driver robbed people by offering them shared rides hence arrested by police.
b) can it mean repetative action in past.
Its a regular activity of driver to rob people by offering them shares rides hence police arrested him
How to differentiate Simple past or repetitive/regular activity in the past?
