Purse stolen from Good Samaritan

I did manage to dig my cards and cash out of her bag

Purse stolen from Good Samaritan

I had a dreadful experience in Duncan this morning and I just want to say a huge thank you to Christa, innocent passerby, the staff at the City of Duncan, and Mike from Duncan Public Works Department.

I gave an elderly lady a ride to downtown Duncan and during the ride she managed to shuffle my purse into her many bags. I noticed after I had let her out of my car, so parked and chased her down. I did manage to dig my cards and cash out of her bag but she had thrown my purse into a dumpster.

The little purse meant a great deal to me as it was given to me by a very good friend and also had my house keys in it. Christa assisted me and accompanied me to the City of Duncan office and with the help of their staff and Mike, who was in there from the City of Duncan Public Works, managed to retrieve my purse. I think my Good Samaritan days are over. So sad.
