7-Eleven Owner Catches Shoplifter. Instead Of Calling 911, He Asks Him Why
April 11, 2019
A 7-Eleven owner in Toledo, Ohio, gave a hungry shoplifting teen food instead of calling the cops.
Store owner Jay Singh says he was alerted by an employee about a suspicious person pocketing items. After watching the cameras, Singh decided to approach the man and asked him why he was stealing.
"He said, 'I'm hungry. I'm stealing it for myself and my younger brother.' I said you need food? I'll give you food. That's not a problem," Singh said.
So he did, filling a bag with food for free and waving off the 911 call. Singh said there was no point in getting the young thief arrested.
"He's a young kid. That will go on his record that he was a thief. He cannot do anything in his life. He will not get a good job. This will not solve his hunger problem," Singh said.
Across the counter, Cedric Bishop was a witness. He thought what he saw was amazing, so he shared it on Facebook.
"He went and started putting chicken drummies, sausage rolls, and a whole pizza and gave him a 2 liter," Bishop wrote. "I thought that was an amazing thing the owner did. I was so touched I gave the young man $10.00 some young people just need to know that someone cares. Just thought I'd share this with you. Have a blessed night."
After doing what he felt was right, Jay said he hopes the teen he helped repays the generosity to someone else down the road.
