TARRANT, Ala. (WKRN) – An Alabama officer surprised a woman who was caught stealing eggs: instead of arresting her, he bought food to help feed her family.
KABC-TV reported that Helen Johnson was caught taking eggs that she did not pay for. She said she only had $1.25 in her pocket and was $.50 short.
Johnson said she had no idea how she was going to feed her five children and grandchildren, two of which are toddlers.
The family had not eaten for two days.
