A Florida mom was caught trying to shoplift groceries, only to end up with food and a ride home from a kind-hearted police officer, according to news reports.
Miami-Dade Police Officer Vicki Thomas was dispatched to a shoplifting case at a Publix grocery store, where a store manager led her to Jessica Robles.
“She was crying. I said, ‘Okay, what did she take?’ He pointed to a cart that was full of groceries,” said Thomas. “I’ve been on [the job] 23 years, and I went, wow.”
“She just filled up the cart and walked out, which shocked me,” the officer recalled. “She said, ‘My children were hungry.' And that immediately impacted me.”
