Police Buy Food for Woman Stealing to Feed Her Family

When police officers in North Carolina responded to a report of theft at a local supermarket, they found a mother struggling to afford to feed her family.

The woman suspected of stealing from the Food Lion supermarket in Hillsborough, North Carolina had been without food for three days.

In a post on Facebook, the Hillsborough Police Department stated Senior Corporal Keith Bradshaw and Officer First Class Candace Spragins "located the offender at her residence, where she gave back the $36 (£29) worth of food that she stole for her and her child.

"This was not a crime out of greed but one seen as necessary by a mother trying to feed a child."
