Sometimes our member agencies receive appreciation from their communities in unexpected ways. This was certainly the case for our member agency, San Bernadino Sexual Assault Services, after their offices were broken into on the night of July 31 and several computers were stolen.
According to Channel 4 NBC Southern California,
The following morning about 4:30 a.m., [Candy] Stallings said she got another call from police about suspicious activity taking place at her office. This time when Stallings arrived, she was astonished by what she found.
“All my stuff was in front of the door,” Stallings said. “There was a shopping cart, and there were the PCs that were taken, there was the laptop – everything was there.”
An investigator who was about to dust the laptop for fingerprints opened it and found a note tucked inside. “We had no idea what we were takeing. Here your stuff back we hope that you guys can continue to make a difference in peoples live. God bless,” said the note with misspellings.
Candy Stallings, who is the Executive Director of San Bernadino Sexual Assault Services, plans to make a photocopy of the note (which has been entered into police evidence) and frame it.
