MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - A Manchester police officer investigating a theft bought a “desperate and hungry” suspect a meal at McDonald’s before charging her.

The incident unfolded about 8:30 Friday morning when officers Lisa Mackey and Kevin Gelinas responded to a call from a woman who said her purse had been stolen.

The officers found the suspects’ car in the parking of a McDonald’s. Christopher Greene was in the car and his girlfriend, Holly Solans, was inside the restaurant. The 20-year-old Solans, described as disheveled and upset, told Mackey they were homeless, had been living in the car and needed food.

Mackey bought Solans a sandwich, let her eat, then charged her with receiving stolen property. Greene was charged with possession of heroin.

Mackey says in a statement that “it wasn’t a big deal.”
