Was just at McD's in summit. Approached by a man wanting money for gas. Gave him $5. Just as I was leaving, seen him with an elderly man getting money from him. He then went to him vehicle and pulled around to Speedway and pulled up to the pump. I followed and watch him approach a woman in a minivan. So I pulled up and told her not to give him money, because he has plenty now for gas. He flipped me off, walked back to him vehicle and drove off. Yes, drove off.. He was supposively out of gas when he was in Mc D's parking lot. I waited at the end of the parking lot and he drove toward the light. I got behind him and wrote his tags down. Here they are KY (boyd) 615 DWZ. Red Camaro mid to late 90's. 5'10 - 6'1, slinder build, jacket, tan pants and generic black tennis shoes, scruffy but thin beard. Notified KSP

He was probably just getting money for pills. Who doesnt do that? Do you expect us to pay for them with out own money? Next time maybe he will just baet you to death and steal your wallet.

I had a lady pull into the BP on 60 asking me for money for gas...I told her to pull around to the other side of my pump and I'd put some in her car for her. She actually did...probably a real "need" in this case, but this guy you're talking about is a straight loser - he'll also hang around the Ashland Mall and Midtown if it's the same guy. I've been approached once by a guy saying his girl had dumped him and he needed some hotel money...the next day, same guy said he and his girl needed some money for food - I said "I thought she dumped your arse." The look on his face = priceless.

Yes there are more than one. There is a guy that tags with a reddish hair dude. This guy is 5-10 or so and usually has facial hair and he is real skinny. Usually wears a hoody or hat and his name is NOah and he will take your money and go get pills. Him and that guy stay at motels like over buy Taco bell on winchester and bum money all day to pay their room and do pills they are junkies

A thin guy with a scraggly beard and a hoodie asked to buy my groceries with his foodstamp card at the grocery a few weeks ago. He wanted the cash in exchange. He too claimed to be out of gas.

No way, he has hit up my whole family. My husband gave him $5. My dad game him a couple of onn's and my kind hearted aunt gave him $20 because he said he needed to feed his grandkid!!! I hate to say this but it is only going to get worse in this area with people losing their jobs. Everyone be safe!!!!

f**k u buddy don't
you know thus world is being ran by drugs practicalyly and If we don't stop it somewhere, it'll never END. My sister was at walmart about a month ago, someguy came to her driver side window after she got into her car, and banged on it real hard. Told her to open the door. The description o the guy above is close to it. It was 2pm and lots of people there. She said no to him and he went to punch the window again and she
backed up real fast. He moved away and
then ran across the lot. He could have hurt her! You don't give anyone money for feeling sorry for them. It's their life, if they want to live off the system, ask for money, and snort pills all day: they will die sooner then most of us. They choose that life! If you want to hand over 5 bucks and then get punched in the face or even beat to death, because it's not what they want; go right ahead! It's your life!

It sounds like there are a handful of these leeches around here. I was sitting in my car in the CVS drive through waiting on a prescription, and this tall slender guy with dark blonde hair and a hat come right up to my car to smack my window. I cracked it and he gave me some sob story about his girlfriend, and how he needs to "get back" to somewhere. I told him I don't carry cash, and he scoffed and went to approach the SUV that was in front of me. He then headed towards the entrance and was trailing after an elderly lady as she went to her car, standing right at her driver's door (she could NOT have closed it if she wanted to) to hit her up, too.
This annoyed me deeply, as the woman had no way to escape this idiot other than to leave her door swinging open as she took off. I'm sure she felt trapped. I watched him to make sure he wasn't out to harm anyone then he took off walking towards the bridge.
I have seen this guy several times since, he is fairly clean, with noted clean shoes. The next time I see him I will call the authorities. We are not so overpopulated here that this can't be controlled.
