Police Officer Picks Up Tab For Groceries

Police officer picks up tab for the groceries a desperate mother tried to STEAL to feed her struggling family

  • Instead of hauling Jessica Robles off to jail, Miami-Dade County Officer Vicki Thomas decided to help her out
  • 'Arresting her wasn't going to solve the problem with her children being hungry,' said Thomas, who instead gave her a misdemeanor citation and bought her $100 worth of groceries
  • Since then, the story has inspired residents and businesses of Miami to help Robles out

A penniless Miami mom desperate to feed her hungry family was nearly arrested while trying to steal $300 worth of groceries, but the responding officer decided to help her instead.

Officer Vicki Thomas arrived on the scene last month, and when Jessica Robles admitted the food was for her starving family, Thomas sent her home with a misdemeanor citation and $100 worth of groceries.

Since news of Thomas's act of kindness has spread, good will offers of money, food, and even a job have poured into the Robles household.



Kindness of strangers: Miami-Dade police officer Vicki Thomas chose to buy a penniless mom some of the groceries she was caught trying to steal instead of arresting her





So grateful: Jessica Robles made the desperate decision to steal food for her hungry family. But getting caught has helped her turn over a new leaf

'I made the decision to buy her some groceries because arresting her wasn't going to solve the problem with her children being hungry,' Thomas, a 23-year veteran on the force, told WSVN.




Robles' 12-year-old daughter Anais shared the family's dire situation with the Miami FOX affiliate.

'[It's] not fun,' she said tearfully, 'to see my brother in the dirt hungry, asking for food, and we have to tell him, "There is nothing here."'
Thomas informed Robles of Church food pantries and other places she could get food to feed her children without stealing.


'To see them go through the bags when we brought them in, it was like Christmas,' she said. 'That $100 to me was worth it.'
Thomas left them with one request.

'The only thing I asked of her is, when she gets on her feet, that she help someone else out,' Thomas said. 'And she said she would.'

$300 worth? At the very least, that's one very full cart. I wonder what gave her away?

I'm torn on subjects like these. I've been that starving kid with not even a packet of ketchup to eat and it sucks. But at the same time, i know that large metropolitan communities have tons of food programs out there, you just need to put forth the effort to seek them out.

So while i can sympathize with them, i also know that there is no reason for them to steal or starve.

Nominally >$100, but the judge might dismiss based on the facts/coverage.

...that is the only connection between the two. Gender. This cop looked beyond her ethnicity, her job, her economic status, her age group, her culture and saw a fellow human being in a bad situation. And she chose to try to help.

Yeah, I know. It's not a black and white world. Virtually infinite shades of grey.
