Police Officer Matt Lima was called to a Stop & Shop grocery store in Somerset, Mass., after store security said two women didn’t scan everything they put in their bags at a self-checkout register. The women, who had two small children with them, were stopped as they left the store. “I have two girls myself, similar in age to the two girls that were there, so it kind of struck me a bit,” Officer Lima said. After talking with the women and learning they were only trying to get Christmas dinner for the kids, the officer bought a $250 gift card for the women, so they could buy their groceries at a different store. “They were very thankful, they were kind of shocked,” Lima said. He served them with a notice not to trespass, but did not press charges.
