Antioch police surprise victims of burglary with trip to Disneyland

- Two Antioch police officers  had a very special surprise for a family who recently had their home burglarized.

Amanda was hoping to take her family to Disneyland over the holidays, but the thieves who broke into her home stole the $2,000 she had saved up. When the two officers who arrived to investigate the crime heard what happened, they decided to take action.

Officer Bledsoe, Officer Aiello and other members of the Antioch Police Department collected $2,000 for the family.

On Saturday, Amanda was called down to the station to look at a “photo lineup” of possible suspects. Instead, she was given a photo lineup of Disney characters and was presented with the gift. The Antioch Police Department posted video of the surprise on their Facebook page:

Today Officer Bledsoe and Officer Aiello presented a family with a very special Christmas gift. Amanda and her two children were the victims of a burglary. Part of their loss was money she had put away to take her two children to Disneyland. Officer Bledsoe and Officer Aiello took it upon themselves to reach out to other members of the department and raise $ 2000 so the family could go on their planed trip to Disneyland this holiday season.When Amanda arrived at the police department during our holiday food and gift giveaway, she believed she was looking at a photo lineup of a possible suspect in the crime. What you're about to see is something that I believe will bring tears to your eyes!Sincerely, Chief Allan Cantando
