KELLER (CBSDFW.COM) – Keller Police want residents to be on the lookout for a man who may be asking for help and taking advantage of people’s kindness. Police say he could be working with a partner, a woman reportedly begging for cash with him.

On Tuesday, police say the man approached a local football coach’s truck at a QuickTrip parking lot in Keller and asked for some cash.

Roger Benefield obliged, giving him a few dollars. The coach is seen on security footage heading into the convenience store; the panhandler doubles back around, opens the side passenger door and is seen rummaging through the vehicle.

Inside the console of the truck, was a fist full of championship rings that Benefield earned as a former Baylor offensive lineman and local coach.

After our story about the stolen rings aired on Wednesday, Keller Police received several tips about the man seen in the security video.

People reported spotting him and a woman asking for money at a 7-Eleven location off of Heritage Trace Parkway. The two can be seen on security video, standing in line at the 7-Eleven on November 16th.

A witness also says she spotted the man at a convenience store in White Settlement.

“We pride ourselves in Texas on southern hospitality. Giving especially this time of the year. It’s sad,” said Kelly Vandewalker a Keller resident.

“Makes you think twice about being nice.” said Dallas Fousek, a 7-Eleven Customer.

If you can identify either of the people seen on the security video, police want to hear from you.
