I was approached today in the parking lot of Walmart in Guntersville. He told me he was from Tuscaloosa and that his wife had went into labor and he did not have enough gas or money to get home, did I have any to spare. I immediately told him I did not carry cash on me that I was sorry I couldn't help him. Thank goodness I was parked near the entrance with people around. This man was a white male, approx in his late to early 30's, he was driving what looked to be a dark green 4 door car. I could not make out what type vehicle it was and I did try to get the liscence plate # but on got the first 3...It appeared to be a Marshall County tag. I then found the first Walmart employee and to them what happend to please report to manager and police. I then call the police dept and let them know what happened. It is very sad and scary knowing people are trying to scam people in this tragic time for our community. So please be careful when you are out at the stores. Try to not go alone and try to park as close as you can where others are around. If approached for money tell them you do not carry cash and call for help and the police immediately. Please be aware of your surroundings at all times.
I want to take a second and thank everyone that come to Albertville's aid, it is much appreciated and a blessing. I live in Guntersville and I'm blessed to know our communities near and far are coming together in time of need. Stay safe and God bless!!
