Gun stolen after man gives strangers a ride

A man who tried to do a good deed early Friday in Lexington ended up becoming a crime victim.

The man told Lexington Police he picked a man and woman up after they asked for a ride through the McDonald's drive thru on Elkhorn Drive, off Winchester Road.

After the man got to the nearby Thornton's, he realized a rifle from his trunk had been stolen.

Police later tracked Justin Justice, 24, to the Microtel, where he was arrested on theft charges.
