    Police say a Bucks County woman who helped a former classmate left homeless after Superstorm Sandy got ripped off for her trouble.

    Lower Southampton Township Police on Wednesday issued an arrest warrant for Mercedes Dombkiewicz, 22, of Runnemede, N.J. She's facing 43 felony counts of access device crimes and 95 misdemeanors including identity theft and receiving stolen property.

    The name of the Good Samaritan wasn't released by authorities. But police said she let her former classmate stay with her from Oct. 30 through Nov. 2, when Dombkiewicz left after they argued.

    The victim told police 43 fraudulent charges were on her debit card, totaling more than $1,300.

    Police said the victim also discovered a $200 gold necklace and a $400 camera were missing. The camera was recovered at a pawn shop.
