Texoma Meals on Wheels looking for thief

By  | 

GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. (KXII) -- A Texoma organization nonprofit dedicated to helping people needs some help of their own.

Meals on Wheels Texoma became the victim of theft this weekend.

"It's just a senseless act of selfishness," said Executive Director of Texoma Meals on Wheels.

He says he got to work Monday to find something very important was missing.

"Where are the air conditioning units?!"

Two five-ton units were cut from the side of building over the weekend, just out of sight of surveillance cameras, costing the nonprofit at least one thousand dollars for an insurance deductible.

"I think because we haven't had anything happen it gives you this false sense of security, right. So I guess we have to, it's a terrible world when you have to monitor every square inch of your property," said Pittman.

The headquarters is located at Perrin Air Field, and Pittman hopes someone saw something and will report it to the Grayson County Sheriff's Office.

"I wish I could say we have a reward to offer but I promise that whoever helps us catch the person is going to get a special margarita in heaven," said Pittman.

He says the money and resources Meals on Wheels will spend to get everything back to normal could have been put to better use.

"They're messing with their elderly neighbors in need," said Pittman. "They're messing with people who have no support system, who rely on a nonprofit like Meals on Wheels to feed them, to check on them every day, to make sure they're safe and your selfishness has compromised your ability to feed 200 meals."
