HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) - A local bakery's good deed hit a snag.
Granny C's Bakery wanted to do something for Huber Heights student athletes who could not afford the $428 pay to play fee in their district.
It put out a jar to collect donations. Unfortunately, someone was not as generous as the bakery or the people making donations.
Workers at the bakery say someone came in over the weekend and tried to use two stolen credit cards to pay for a purchase.
They say he then helped himself to about $20 in change from the donation jar and ran out.
"He came in here and it was probably a crime of opportunity, but he decided he was going to steal from our children," said Sarah Taulbert, Manager. "The people of Huber Heights are like extended family to us and we started asking the kids will they play football and they said no I can't afford it this year."
The thief is not hampering the bakery's efforts. It has now started a fund at PNC Bank.
