A 69-year-old Villager has been sentenced in the attempted theft of items in December from the Goodwill Superstore in The Villages.

Security cameras captured Prakob Beeman of 711 Melendez Way putting five items into her purse and then leaving the store, according to an arrest report from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office. The items had a total value of $16.37. She was stopped by store security and taken back into the store. When a deputy arrived, Beeman told the deputy she had “messed up and took the items,” the arrest report indicated.

On Dec. 28 in Sumter County Court, Beeman admitted guilt in the case. She was placed on six months probation and ordered to perform 20 hours of community service.

    True the owner of Goodwill makes a large salary. Not optimum, but not a show stopper either. The fact is that they employ people who otherwise may not be employable, Further, they are a source for the poor to buy some quality re purposed items. In these two ways they provide a great service to the community,

    She wasn’t donating! 🙄

    Go to the local Good Will. Talk to the employees.

    If YOU feel it’s a charity racket, then don’t donate. Most people just want to get rid of their stuff and have it repurposed.

    GOOD-WILL MY BEHIND; It’s the owners good lining for his pockets….He gives NOTHING to charity. He puts the money in HIS pocket…Like Jean says…Check out a charity before you donate. They give some low paying jobs to people , then work the hell out of them….put your stuff on consignment; then donate the money…To: Sal. Army; St. Jude; Schrine’rs….Even the Red Cross is CROOKED…
