AMVETS Worker Charged With Stealing From Charity

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.
