Dumb: Burglarizing The Home Of Two Sheriff's Deputies. Cold-Hearted: Taking The Cash They'd Raised For Cancer Victim

Categories: Crime

We stole from WHO?!?
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.

Yeah, this stinks. Inside job.


Why is no one pointing their finger at the cops? Will their homeowner's insurance replace the stolen / broken items? If so, I'd say they just made some fat bank. Where was your hidden shoebox hiding anyway? In the microwave? I know if I'm going to take the effort to hide a shoebox full of $3500, I'm going to put it somewhere that is actually hidden. I smell foul play...


The crooks broke in just to bust the deputies' TV, jewelry, and electronics? How cruel. You would think the crooks would rather have stolen these types of items.
