A couple has been bound to the grand jury for trying to carjack a good Samaritan who took pity on a woman walking in the rain.
The couple, Tyson Moser and his wife, Amber Moser, waived their right to a preliminary hearing before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke and were bound to the grand jury on charges of robbery, assault, carjacking, and on a separate charge of shoplifting for dining and dashing at J’s Restaurant.
Police say a woman picked up Mrs. Moser as she walked in the rain. When the woman got in the car her husband suddenly appeared and jumped in the car with her. The good Samaritan, not knowing what to do, took the couple to Walmart where she hoped they would leave peacefully.
When they reached Walmart, Mrs. Moser allegedly jumped the motorist and tried to take her keys. The woman was able to fight the Mosers off and the two ran away on foot with the victim’s purse. They were caught a short time later by police who say Mrs. Moser had changed her appearance, hair and outfit, trying to elude them.
Mrs. Moser was free on bond at the time of the carjacking for allegedly robbing a man who gave her and a friend a ride. Investigators say the women lured the man to a remote location where they jumped the victim, taking his wallet. Three men also showed up in another vehicle and picked up Moser and her accomplice making lawmen believe the crime was an ambush.
Mrs. Moser was also on bond at the time of the carjacking for dining and dashing on a $17 meal from J’s at the mall. The couple remain held in lieu of bond facing up to 12 years on the robbery charge.
