BRANDENBURG, Ky. — A mother was charged with theft by deception after returning toys donated to her children for some cold, hard cash. Amanda Beard’s four children were part of the 50 kids eligible to participate in the Fraternal Order of Police annual Shop with a Cop charity program for needy families. The program is allows needy children to spend $150 dollars each on toys for Christmas. Beard’s four kids were part of the 50 children hand-picked this year and were able to purchase approximately $600 dollars worth of clothes and toys. But police say the next day Beard returned $100 of those toys back to the store they were purchased from. After pocketing the cash, she then went to another location and tried to return another $66 worth of donations. She was arrested and charged with theft, but says it’s all just a big muisunderstanding. The 28-year-old says that she returned the donated toys for items the children needed, although police say she has not been able to produce receipts backing up that statement. Beard has a previous history of fraud, the police report mentioning Beard being deceptive for food stamps and assisted living expenses. Two of the children’s fathers added that the children are not needy.Tags: Christmas, Crime, fraud, Kentucky, Theft
