#Lakeland I need your help! This woman stole a VERY expensive package off of our porch on Friday afternoon. Please look at her walk, her shirt, her hair, the car with the hubcap missing, all of it! If you know her please text me! I dont have messenger so if you don’t have my number but you have Lances text him please. I’m on a mission to find her. One of the first things we learn as a child is not to steal! I would like to personally remind her. Lance works his a** off and I’ll be damned if I just let some criminal take what he worked for. I hope you don’t mind but I’m tagging everyone local to me that I can quickly think of. Thank you for helping me, I’ll post a sunshiney something er rather after I catch her 🙂 Have a great day yall and God bless X
