The robber got away, and the couple is OK, but maybe they'll think twice about picking up hitchers in the future.
A couple trying to do a good deed instead ended up helping a man commit a bad one Tuesday morning.
The couple gave a man a ride to a check cashing store in the 300 block of W.W. White Road on the East Side around 10:15 a.m. The man got out and went inside while the couple waited in the truck.
A few minutes later, the man ran out of the store. The couple, believing the man would return for a ride back with them, continued to wait in the truck. Instead, the police showed up, and the couple found out the store had been robbed.
