"Couple Unknowingly Gives Robber A Ride"

If you see someone who needs a ride to a check-cashing place, you might not want to wait around for him to get done with his business.


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.

The robber got away, and the couple is OK, but maybe they'll think twice about picking up hitchers in the future.

Definitely a lesson learned. Be extra careful next time.
