After mistaken theft report, gifts restock Webster food pantry

A reported theft Thursday at the Webster-Dudley Food Share was apparently a misunderstanding and no crime occurred, Webster police said in a statement on their Facebook page Friday. When workers arrived at the food pantry Thursday morning, they found shelves nearly bare of food and found other items slated for donation were missing. After an investigation, Webster police determined that no food was unaccounted for and that there had been a problem with communication between the parties responsible for stocking the shelves. After the reported theft, community members donated enough food to the food share to “cover the foreseeable need,” police said.
