It Doesn’t Always Pay to be a Good Samaritan
Posted on Aug 9th, 2017

An act of kindness didn’t pay off so well for this Good Samaritan, a local resident of the San Bernard River. She was driving to work on CR 496, better known as Pickett Lane that eventually hooks up to FM 2611 just east of the Churchill Bridge, when a woman standing on the side of the road waved and signaled for the resident to stop. Thinking she needed help, the resident stopped. The hitchhiker had blond hair, was wearing a tank top and shorts and sported a tattoo on her upper arm.
The woman said she needed a ride to the convenience store at the Churchill Bridge. She got into the car and buckled her seat belt, but on the way to the store, unbuckled it. The resident told her to buckle back up, which she did. When they arrived at the store, the woman got out of the car and acted like she knew someone in the parking lot, then went into the store.
The resident went on to work and discovered her phone had been stolen, probably when the hitchhiker had distracted her by unbuckling her seat belt. The resident called the Brazoria police who referred her to the Sheriff’s dept. It was found out later, the woman had hitched a ride with a couple in the store and had stolen their purse. 
The thief is still at large, so sometimes you need to think twice about being a Good Samaritan.
