I moved recently to a place i know no one and i became friends with a girl down the street who has a son the same age as mine. We've grown close and i see her almost everyday so are kids can play. she recently got interested in cloth diapers by her neighbor who was going to sell his daughters old ones since she had outgrown them and my friend was going to buy them $100 for 12 and he ordered new ones. Well today we met up and went to pick up a toy and when we we're driving down the street the delivery van was delivering his new cloth diapers((they live in the same duplex)) she goes "oh i bet those are his new cloth diapers" so i nodded and agree'd and she did something i thought was odd and followed to see if the delivery driver dropped off anymore packages before dropping me off at my house I forgot my phone in her car so i ran back to her house with my son in tow and she was no where to be seen and the guy's package was missing, her kids let me into the house and i asked where there mom was and they shrugged so i placed my son infront of the tv and wandered upstairs to find her she came bursting out of her room and goes "OH you suprised me" and quickly closed her door and shoo'd me down stairs where she was acting nervous and brought up her neighbor((who does not get home til around 4 military)) saying how he had just come home. she then brought up that she had found some lady who was going to sell her cloth diapers brand new for cheap((she was really nervous)) and she just posted online that she was looking for a sprayer/cloth diaper accesorcies...since i hang out with her everyday i know that she does not have the money to buy fast food let alone drop a large amount on cloth diapers and the fact she was eyeing and acting so strange after the package incident i'am more then positive she stole her neighbors package. I'm really torn on what to do because i have become so close to this lady but she more then likely just stole hundred's of dollars of stuff from another military family who probably do not have the money to replace it. She has two kids of her own and i really need advice on what to do..i'm sure i will come over tomorrow to find her kid in the stolen cloth diapers/her bragging about how/lying about how she got them but i can't get over the fact she stole from someone who needed it for her own greed esp from her own neighbor but i don't really want to loose the only person i've met since moving here/get her jail time and taken away from her kids...because it is not fair to them((her husband is deployed they have a lot of debt and hardly money to pay for grocerys))
Btw her son is 3 he isn't going to need to be in diapers much longer....and we 're in Canada so i've heard the jail time for it/fines are extreme. last night she also posted ALL of her son's diapers((disposable ones)) on a swap and shop group we belong to selling them for 15 a bag...
