Hitchhiker gets taken by being stranded at gas station

A woman was left puzzled after a case of hitchhiking gone wrong on Tuesday morning. The woman told police she had paid a stranger $100 to drive her from a San Bernardino hotel to Los Angeles. The pair stopped at the Claremont/McDonald’s so the woman could buy the driver some oil for the car. When she returned with the oil, however, her ride was nowhere to be found and neither were her belongings. The woman claims more than $2700 in clothes, bath products and money were stolen. She was unable to provide any suspect information or details about the suspect’s vehicle. A report was taken, but the crook and her car have yet to make a reappearance.
