A mother was so humiliated by her son’s allegedly burglarizing a person’s car in Apple Valley, that she posted an apology for his actions on her Facebook page.
Breaking down in tears when she was made aware of her son’s alleged thievery, Paula Hamblen told KCAL,”I was really upset because they said it was really terrible things that they were doing.” Steven Edinborough, whose Jeep was burglarized, admired Hamblen after reading her post. “I was kind of blown away for her courage to come out. At the same time, I was embarrassed for her son,” he said.
Edinborough explained that when he got in his car, “I went to grab my wallet, and my glove box was cleaned out… I looked in my change holder, and it was all pennies, but they were all gone, and I was, ‘Oh, my gosh; I totally got robbed.'”
KCAL has not released the name of Hamblen’s son or if any charges have been brought. She hopes that a combination of humiliation and time behind bars might help her son. “He’s probably going to be mad at me, but I don’t care. Hopefully he learns his lesson,” she confessed.
According to the police, the stolen property has been recovered.
