By: Natalie Kinstle, Harris County Tiger Times News, April 20th, 2017

A 16 year old boy was recently arrested for robbing a group home on Sunday in Columbus, Georgia. The Guardian Home of Hope provides for girls in need from ages twelve through eighteen. According to an employee, a few people broke into the house through an unlocked window. They went through items in the bedrooms and the kitchen, leaving behind three damaged doors and an impaired alarm panel. The boy stole multiple food items, as well as a jug of apple juice.

A police officer was called to the group home at around 4:30 PM that evening to investigate the scene. Shortly after, the officers spotted the suspect strolling along Valley Sea Crest Drive, toting around the jug of apple juice. The officer confronted the teenager about the juice, and the boy admitted to the crime. He was taken into custody, and charged with first-degree burglary. He served a hearing at 2:00 PM on Monday morning in juvenile court.

If you are hungry, and can not afford a meal, there are other ways to obtain food. The organization, “Feeding the Valley”, distributes donated food and grocery products to those in need, and is located in Columbus, Georgia. There are multiple other organizations, food banks, and churches within Georgia that donate food, clothing, and other products to those in need.
