Man caught stealing donations from veterans
This story was the result of a Shelby County Sheriff's Office news release. It even included a photo of the alleged crime taking place. I've been anchoring the 4:00 news.. So, it's nice to have a ready-made story when I'm done. This one concerns an AMVETS charity truck driver accused of stealing from the load of donations he was hauling. Investigators snapped a pic of him allegedly selling some of the goods to a woman in a random parking lot. It was pretty easy getting people to react to the crime. My first few interviews happened to be with veterans or those with veterans in their families.
