Posted: Updated:

NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Police say a Rhode Island woman is facing charges for allegedly stealing from a Good Samaritan who gave her ride after her car broke down.

North Attleborough police say 24-year-old Erin Gilbert of Providence, R.I., stole the pocketbook of a woman who gave her a ride to her boyfriend's home in Pawtucket, R.I., after her car broke down at the Emerald Square mall on Saturday.

Police tell The Sun Chronicle (http://bit.ly/13BlUIC ) that Gilbert went to the mall after stealing another woman's purse from an East Providence gym and trying to use stolen credit cards at three stores. The stores rejected the sales.

Gilbert was ordered held without bail over the weekend pending her arraignment scheduled for Monday. It was not clear if she had a lawyer.
