Dumb: Burglarizing The Home Of Two Sheriff's Deputies. Cold-Hearted: Taking The Cash They'd Raised For Cancer Victim
We can be pretty sure that the cops will be active in hunting down the perps behind a Monday burglary in Galveston.
That's because a) the home that was hit belongs to two Galveston County Sheriff's Office deputies, and b) among the loot taken was money from a fundraiser for one of the deputy's relatives, a cancer victim.
Way to pick a victim, dudes. The Galveston County Daily News reports the husband-wife deputies Jesse and Amanda Khaled had jewelry and electronics and their TV busted.
That wasn't the worst, though: Also gone was about $3,500 raised to help Amanda's sister-in-law in her cancer fight.
The money was kept in a hidden shoebox.
"I know that sounds bad," Amanda told the News, "but my brother and his sister have different banks, and he thought it best to have it there and just send the money as she needs it."
Well, we guess deputies think they're safe.
Anyone with information about the case should call 409-765-3702.
