Good Samaritan loses $300 in motel theft
A Laurel man's Good Samaritan act backfired on him Saturday when a woman he allowed to stay in his motel room stole $300 from him and a man she was with later threatened him with a gun, county police said.
Cassidey Adewumi, 24, who stays at the Laurel East Motel in the 3400 block of Fort Meade Road, returned there from a nearby 7-Eleven store about 6:30 a.m. Saturday. He met a woman in the lobby who said she got locked out of her room and asked if she could stay in his room until her boyfriend returned. Mr. Adewumi and the woman went to his room, where he fell asleep, police said.
The victim awoke about 2 p.m. and discovered that the woman was gone, along with his wallet containing $300. He went to the woman's room, but a man inside threatened to shoot him. Mr. Adewumi then went to the lobby and called police. He saw the man who threatened him and two other men get in a brown Cadillac on the parking lot, police said.
The police dispatcher told him to get the car's tag number. When Mr. Adewumi stepped outside, another man got of the car, brandished a handgun and threatened to shoot him, police said. The men then drove off toward Camp Meade Road.
