WAS SUPPOSED TO END FOR ME. JORDAN LINDSEY’S FAMILY IS RAISING MONEY NOW FOR HER FUNERAL. CHEATED, LIED TO OR SCAMMED? SHE’S TACKLING EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE SOMETHING THAT’S GOING WRONG RIGHT. BETTER BETTER CALL BEHNKEN BEHNKEN. AN 88-YEAR-OLD SPRING HILL MARINE’S LAWN LOOKS LIKE IT SHOULD AGAIN BECAUSE THE FAMILY OF ALBERT SULRIDGE TURNED TO BETTER CALL BEHNKEN A MONTH AGO AFTER A CROOK STOLE HIS 4-FOOT MARINE STATUE RIGHT OUT OF HIS YARD. 8 ON YOUR SIDE INVESTIGATOR SHANNON BEHNKEN JOINS ME NOW. THE HERNANDO COUNTY FIREFIGHTER WAS SO MOVED BY OUR REPORT HE DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. HE AND FELLOW FIREFIGHTERS CLIPPED CHIPPED IN AND BOUGHT A REPLACEMENT MARINE. THAT’S THE SOUND OF PAYING IT FORWARD. 10 FIREFIGHTERS SPENT THEIR DAY OFF PRESSURE WASHING, PULLING WEEDS AND PULLING TREES FOR BARBARA AND ALBERT SULRIDGE AND GOT THE HOUSE READY FOR A NEW 4- FOOT MARINE STATUE CUSTOM PAINTED IN ALBERT’S DRESSED BLUES TO REPLACE THE ONE A THIEF BRAZENLY STOLE LAST MONTH. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS? I LOVE IT. I NEVER DREAMED OF SOMETHING LIKE THIS, JUST WONDERFUL. Reporter: WHEN ALBERT AND BARBARA TURNED TO ME, THEY HOPED OUR VIEWERS WOULD RECOGNIZE THE THIEF IN THIS SURVEILLANCE VIDEO AND HELP GET THEIR MARINE BACK. FIREFIGHTER JOHNSON JACOBELLIS HEARD THEIR PLEAS. HE GREW UP IN THE AREA AND WANTED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. HE’S A PROUD MARINE AND ALWAYS HAD EVERYTHING TOUGH AND I ALWAYS RECOGNIZE THAT. WHEN I SAW THAT AND KNEW THE HOUSE, I WANTED TO DO SOMETHING RIGHT AND TRY AND FIX SOMETHING WRONG. Reporter: ALBERT’S FELLOW MARINES WATCHED AS HE SALUTED THE NEW MARINE, THE CONCRETE STATUTE WEIGHING 150 POUNDS, HOPEFULLY HEAVY ENOUGH TO DETER FUTURE CROOKS. THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL. IT IS. IT MAKES YOU FEEL MORE WELCOME. Reporter: BARBARA AND ALBERT WERE STUNNED BY THE GENEROSITY. I’M OVERWHELMED. I JUST CAN’T BELIEVE IT. THERE ARE SOME NICE PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD. Reporter: NOT ONLY HAVE THEY GAINED A NEW STATUE, BUT NEW FRIENDS AS WELL. ALBERT WANTED TO DO SOMETHING TO SHOW HOW THANKFUL HE WAS. SO HE ORDERED PIZZA FOR ALL THE FIREFIGHTERS THAT HELPED AND I REALLY THINK THAT THEY’LL BE LIFELONG FRIENDS. THAT IS GREAT. WHAT ABOUT THE CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION? DO WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CROOK? UNFORTUNATELY THE CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION IS CONTINUING, BUT ALBERT IS DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE THERE ARE NO LEADS. SO IF YOU RECOGNIZE THE THIEF IN THAT SURVEILLANCE VIDEO, PLEASE CALL HERNANDO COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE. BARBARA AND ALBERT TELL ME THEY ARE MOVING ON. THEY’RE JUST HAPPY TO HAVE THE NEW STATUE.
