Shop With a Cop Helps Eight-Year-Old Replace Stolen Presents
CINCINNATI (Paula Toti) -- A family had their home cleaned out by thieves and some of what they lost belonged to a little girl.
That included her Christmas presents and even her piggy bank money.
Police helped to brighten her holiday Tuesday, inviting her to the "Shop with a Cop" event on the west side.
All crime victims have their sense of peace shattered and it is particularly sad when it happens to a child.
At the Ferguson Walmart Tuesday night there was some time to put troubles aside and give one family the chance to forget the crime that happened right before Thanksgiving. Their Christmas presents in bags still with receipts were stolen.
8-year-old Arianna Kramer of Westwood was like any other child, but knowing thieves were in her house has left her a little shy.
Arianna's mother, Kelli Kramer, is most upset that her daughter has lost a sense of security. But Tuesday night a little shopping provided the light moments needed for everyone.
A little girl having her gifts and even piggy bank stolen was very personal to police who have noticed Arianna has been emotionally affected by the crime. Had the "Shop With A Cop" Program not come about officers at the precinct were going to take up a collection to replace some of the gifts.
Police say they think several suspects will be facing charges soon. They think the Westwood crime is linked to some others and while they might not get charges in this exact case police think the same people will be picked up for those others.
