Picking up a hitch-hiker has cost a German tourist her wallet and its contents.

The woman picked up the male hitch-hiker yesterday, but after dropping him off, at an unknown South Canterbury location, she discovered her wallet missing.

She reported the matter to Timaru police, believing the hitch-hiker stole it when he left the vehicle.
