The daughters use to receive a monthly welfare check of $120 for her disability, but this month, the check got lost in the mail and the family has nothing to eat. The family had to stay hungry for days, when the desperate Helen Johnson took her leftover $1.25 to buy eggs from Dollar General, she could not purchase the carton of eggs and was a few cents short.

To her desperation, and unable to go home empty-handed, she stole 5 eggs to feed her family. She said, “Of course when I put them in my pocket, they broke. I am not a good th-ief at all.” Seeing the dripping jacket, the employee of the shop, stopped her and asked if she was a culprit and she has to admit.

The store called the officer, but instead of taking her into custody, the officer William Stacy walked into the store and bought a carton of eggs for Helen Johnson and hugged her. The whole incident was caught on video by a passerby and was shared on social media.
