LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB Fox 41) -- A Meade County woman is taken to jail after turning in "Shop With a Cop" toys and clothing for cash.
The Fraternal Order of Police held the "Shop With a Cop" event December 14th. Meade County Sheriff's Deputy Bryan Rogers helped four children find toys and warm clothes that day.
Deputy Rogers, however, says he was angered to learn that the mother of the children had returned the gifts for cash the following day.
28-year-old Amanda Beard of Brandenburg was arrested and charged with theft by deception under $300. She was taken into custody on Friday afternoon and placed into the Meade County
That is EXACTLY what I think.

So... the "terrible" cops took this woman and her children out to buy them toys and warm clothes...
and she returned the items for cash the very next day...
and you think that it is wrong for her to be called on the carpet for this?
Tell that to her children when they are freezing because they have no winter coats,
and they are sad because they have no gifts under the tree,
while their mother spends the cash.
I am sure if she qualifies for "Shop with a Cop" then she is receiving assistance from other
programs as well.
Each year, the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Lodge #116, sponsor, and organize, the bringing together of children and law enforcement in an evening of Christmas shopping at the Grafton Walmart.
Before the shopping spree could begin, the children were dropped off and signed in at Anna Jarvis Elementary School.
There, they were treated to dinners of pizza and chicken, with drinks, courtesy of Hometown Pizza, Dominos and Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Hands were raised at every cafeteria table, as members of law enforcement and other chaperones scurried back and forth to serve the children.
After a briefing to the chaperones, including how much money was available for each child to spend and items that were not permitted to be bought, the children were led to two buses supplied by Oak Grove Baptist Church and driven by Tony Williams and Bill Lucas, for their five star escort of red and blue lights to Walmart.
