Found this story today…and love it. It has the perfect ending.
In Florida the other day a police officer caught a woman shoplifting at a grocery store. She walked out with $300 worth of food in her cart.
The officer, Vicki Thomas, stopped her. The woman, Jessica Robles, said she stole out of desperation to feed her 3 little kids. When the story checked out and the officer determined Jessica didn’t have a record she decided not to arrest her, but went back into the store and bought $100 worth of groceries for Jessica and her kids. Robles didn’t have a car so Vicki loaded the food into her police car…and took Jessica home. That, in itself, is a great ending, but even better is the fact that once Jessica’s story went public, a man hired her on the spot for a customer service position. But the biggest cheer goes to Officer Vicki Thomas.
