Kansas Woman, Who Was Helped by Officer, Now Jailed on Drug Charge

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas City woman with six children who was helped by a police officer when she was shoplifting diapers is now jailed on a federal drug charge. Wyandotte County Sheriff's department spokeswoman Lt. Kelli Bailiff says Sarah Robinson was taken to jail Friday. She was indicted by a federal grand jury in St. Louis in July with possessing methamphetamine with the intent to distribute. The alleged crime occurred in Lincoln County, Missouri, in March 2014. Bailiff says she was not sure where Robinson's children were taken. When Robinson was stopped July 6 for shoplifting the diapers, Roeland Park Police Officer Mark Engravalle bought shoes, diapers and baby wipes for some of Robinson's children. After his gesture received national attention, the public donated about $6,000 and numerous items to the family.
