TIFTON -- An act of kindness apparently resulted in a woman having her wedding ring stolen between 10:30 and 11:15 p.m. Tuesday on Olde Creek Road.
Michael Miller of Olde Creek Road told the Tifton Police Department that around 10:30 p.m. a man stopped by his house asking for some gas.
The man, who said his name was Scott Williamson, asked if Miller knew a particular couple and he did. Miller told the man that he would draw him a map to the married couple's house.
While inside the house, Williamson asked Miller if he could have $5. Miller refused but said that he would go with him to the store to get gas. When Miller's wife Amber Miller returned home, he took Williamson to a gas station on 20th Street and purchased gas.
When he returned home, he noticed his wife's wedding ring, valued at $1,500, missing from the kitchen counter.
The incident was listed as a theft by the TPD.
