Single Mother Who Got Caught Shoplifting For Food Is Blessed 10 Times Over!
Police officers in Orem, Utah, never thought they would see the day when they would be doing so much to help out a shoplifter.
A late call in November had Orem police officers showing up to a grocery store in which a single mother of two, Rebecca Freemont, was trying to steal some food.
“This [theft] was totally different [from most cases]. It wasn’t Bluetooth speakers, it wasn’t things that are luxuries,” Officer Jared Goulding told ABC News affiliate KTVX-TV. “It was food to feed her family that she couldn’t afford otherwise.”
Responding officers decided to take special interest in Freemont, since she wasn’t trying to steal non-essential items. They in on her at her low-income government housing complex where they made a discovery that truly touched their hearts.
“There wasn’t any type of TV or entertainment, nothing on the walls. The only thing, as far as decoration, was a picture of a Christmas tree that it looked like the kids had kind of colored on and decorated to decorate their Christmas tree.” – Goulding said as he described Freemont’s home
This brought the police officers a brilliant idea. They decided to organize a project in which they would furnish and collect money for Freemont and her family.
