Marine vet gets stolen gear back, has thief wash his car and go job hunting


Kelly Mercer, a Marine veteran believes in second chances. He received a tip from a friend who knew the teen responsible for breaking into his car and stealing his things. He went to the thief’s home and confronted him to get his stuff back.

Mercer gave the teen a choice, he could call the police and press charges for stealing his military gear and softball equipment, or the teen can wash the veteran’s car this weekend, go job hunting with him, and to meet with a military recruiter.

The teen will be accompanying the Marine veteran around town for a while and has decided against the charges.
