Officer has change of heart after busting single mom
MIAMI, Fla. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Officer Vicki Thomas in Miami stopped a woman at a supermarket for trying to steal about $300 worth of groceries.
But instead of arresting her, Thomas spent $100 of her own money to buy her enough food for a week.
"When I asked her why she did it, and she said she needed to feed her children, I could relate," Officer Thomas said. "I was a single mom and without the help of my family, that could have been me."
However, Thomas did still charge the woman with a misdemeanor, and provided her with other resources to get help feeding her family.
