On December 19, 2015 The Antioch Police Department posted the following to their facebook page: It was regarding a woman who had been the victim of a burglary. Responding officers made sure that the kids didn’t suffer a bad Christmas, but rather one that they will never forget.
Today Officer Bledsoe and Officer Aiello presented a family with a very special Christmas gift.
Amanda and her two children were the victims of a burglary. Part of their loss was money she had put away to take her two children to Disneyland.
Officer Bledsoe and Officer Aiello took it upon themselves to reach out to other members of the department and raise $ 2000 so the family could go on their planed trip to Disneyland this holiday season.
When Amanda arrived at the police department during our holiday food and gift giveaway, she believed she was looking at a photo lineup of a possible suspect in the crime. What you’re about to see is something that I believe will bring tears to your eyes!
