    When Thomas asked Robles why she did it, the young mother said her children were hungry.

    Thomas looked at Robles' criminal history and didn't find any major charges, WSVN reported. Instead of being taken into custody, Robles was issued a notice to appear in court and charged with a misdemeanor.

    -------------------

    "I made the decision to buy her some groceries because arresting her wasn't going to solve the problem with her children being hungry," she said.

    Thomas went back inside Publix and purchased $100 worth of groceries for the family. She told CNN she used her debit card.

    I knew before reading that it would either be texas or florida and the foodstamps had been cut off for the family. Thank goodness those children got food for the week and it sounds like lots more help for the coming few months.
