Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman’s office recently responded to a welfare check at Cypresswood and I-45. Upon deputies arriving, they found a young couple sleeping on the sidewalk. An investigation revealed that they were both homeless and were trying to get to a friend’s house down south.
Constable deputies noticed that neither one of them had shoes and their feet had blisters. The couple told deputies that during their travels someone stole their shoes, so they had been walking barefoot for the last few days.
Deputies Christopher Jackson, Keira Teamer and Stephanie Olvera decided to pay a visit to the local Target store, where they bought both of them socks and shoes to finish their trip.
