Police: Bucks Co. woman helps Sandy victim, gets robbed
FEASTERVILLE, Pa. (AP) - November 28, 2012 (WPVI) -- Police say a Bucks County woman who helped a former classmate left homeless after superstorm Sandy got ripped off for her trouble.
Lower Southampton police on Wednesday issued an arrest warrant for 22-year-old Mercedes Dombkiewicz of Runnemeade, N.J.
She's facing 43 felony counts of access device crimes and 95 misdemeanors including identity theft and receiving stolen property.
The name of the good Samaritan wasn't released by authorities. But police said she let her former classmate stay with her from Oct. 30 through Nov. 2, when Dombkiewicz left after they argued.
The victim told police 43 fraudulent charges were on her debit card, totaling more than $1,300.
Police said the victim also discovered a $200 gold necklace and a $400 camera were missing. The camera was recovered at a pawn shop.
