News Station Confronts Pregnant Beggar Seen Driving Away In Late Model Mercedes Benz (VIDEO)
10 News San Diego is reporting – in a story that quickly went viral – that viewers are outraged about a pregnant women who was seen begging for money on a busy street corner with a young boy, only to drive away in a late-model Mercedes-Benz only moments later.
On Tuesday, the station aired a story after an angry motorist witnessed the events and contacted the station.
Melissa Smith reported that she had seen the woman and boy panhandling on the corner of an Eastlake mall virtually every weekend for a couple of months. She was shocked when, while pumping gas nearby, she saw the two climb in to the expensive car driven by an unknown male and drive away. Smith pulled out her cell phone camera and documented the scene. Moments later she found herself on the road behind the couple and the child, telling 10 News;
“Lo and beyond they were in front of us. Here they are counting money, laughing and their little boy is not in a car seat or seat belt. He’s all the way in the front seat with them.”
Even more upsetting to Smith is that they seemingly were not done begging but merely moving locations:
“They drive down to the other McDonald’s. She sits there with the sign. He goes and parks the Mercedes. Not less than five minutes here she is getting money from all these people.”
10 news aired the story, but it didn’t end there. The station confronted what appeared to be the couple after another viewer who saw the story contacted the station saying that she had recognized the couple at yet another location later the same day. Strangely, this time the woman had an infant and no longer appeared pregnant.
Although the couple denied that they were the couple from the story, they certainly made a hasty get-away.
