Thieves steal $10,000 worth of diapers from metro Atlanta charity

Posted: Updated:
EAST POINT, Ga. -

Thieves stole thousands of dollars of diapers that belonged to a metro Atlanta charity.

Surveillance video shows the crooks hauling carts piled high with diapers out of a storage unit in East Point.

Antonio Raven said that the thieves got away with more than $10,000 worth of diapers and thousands more in other baby supplies that belonged to Joshua's Closet, his daughter's charity.

The Ravens say additional surveillance video shows a U-Haul coming through a gate and then five guys load everything into the truck.  

"It was really a hurting feeling to see that happening," said Antonio Raven.  

Keiana Raven said that the charity gives teen parents basic necessities. She started Joshua's Closet after she learned first-hand how difficult it is to be a teen mom; she became pregnant in 9th grade.

Keiana is now in college and is trying to help other young girls.  She says this burglary is a setback for the organization, but she and Joshua's Closet will persevere.

"It will hurt it right now, but I know that, in the end, it will be a good thing to come out of it," said Keiana Raven.
