Thief steals Louisville judge’s car full of school supplies


After her car was stolen with school supplies for underprivileged children inside, Judge Derwin Webb determined that the thief would not steal her or the children’s joy.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – A Louisville judge thanks a generous community after his car was stolen with donations of school supplies inside.

Judge Derwin Webb said his car was taken on Saturday and quickly took to Facebook to discuss the situation.

“…I’m not mad at the car. It can be replaced. I am angry, however, that back-to-school items purchased for underprivileged children were stolen in the process,” he wrote.

Despite the person who committed the despicable act, Webb was adamant that the person would not steal his joy or the children’s joy.

On Sunday, Judge Webb received some good news.

“The police didn’t call – there was someone in the community who let me know they had information about my car – how it was taken and where it was, so it’s like that’s how I got the information. [I] ended up going to Jeffersonville,” he explained.

Judge Webb said that once he crossed the river into Indiana, an officer in Jeffersonville confirmed the car was his and let him drive it home.

However, school supplies were not inside.

He said he went back to replace school supplies and bought some more.

Judge Webb told WHAS11 News he plans to present the donations to 50 local children at an event at the Frazier Museum on Monday.
