Cop Called To Arrest Alleged Shoplifter Ends Up Buying Her Diapers Helping Out In Her Hour Of Need

A kindhearted cop in Laurel, Maryland, is receiving plaudits for dealing with an alleged shoplifter in a genuinely heartwarming way. After security guards at a Giant grocery store detained a young mother this weekend for allegedly trying to steal $15 worth of diapers, Laurel Police Department Officer Bennett Johns cited her for misdemeanor theft. But when the woman, who has not been identified, claimed she couldn’t afford to buy the diapers for her 2-year-old son, Johns turned a negative into a positive and paid for them out of his own pocket. Laurel police Chief Richard McLaughlin told Fox News he was “very proud” of all of his officers “and particularly this one.” “I think it speaks volumes that they are doing the right thing for the right reason when nobody is watching,” he said.
