A 7-Eleven owner who caught a teen stealing snacks didn’t call the cops on him, and instead sent him home with even more food. The kid admitted he took food only because he and his younger brother were hungry and had nothing to eat. The owner told the kid, “This is not food. You want food? I’ll give you food.” And then he told him to go get pizzas, chicken, sandwiches, fruit, and meals from the shelves so he could take bags of real food home - all free of charge. 13 ABC
