teddy bear thievesThese two teddy bear thieves tried to take massive teddy bears from a roadside vendor, but didn’t expect to get stopped so quickly by a red light and some very helpful witnesses!

A video filmed by a witness shows two men struggling to fit giant teddy bears they stole from a Valentine’s Day pop-up vendor into their SUV. While they appeared to make a getaway, they found themselves slowed down by a red light.

Lucky for the vendor, bystanders had enough time to run to the SUV, open its doors and take the stuffed animals back to the roadside vendor, Erika Gonzalez.

“When I saw it, I felt angered because I think it was two kids. Very young people. It does affect me because I’ve worked very hard to get where I’m at and people think that because I own a business, I have money. But that’s not the case. I’m working hard to get my money,” she told the local news.

Gonzalez is so grateful to the witnesses who were able to retrieve the teddy bears for her! “I’m glad that there are still people with a heart. People that still have the courage to defend and risk.”

She also says that she has forgiven the attempted thieves.

“I send them my blessing, and hope God puts love in their hearts for others,” Gonzalez said.
