MARIETTA, Ga. (WXIA) -- On Monday morning, when a Marietta cancer charity opened its doors after a weekend fundraiser, the staff discovered the diamond necklace used to raise money had been stolen.
Stealing from Loving Arms Cancer Outreach doesn't only shortchange the staff here. It takes from those fighting for survival.
"We raise money to help the cancer patients," said director Shay Trayler.
Trayler was checking in on things between fundraisers at the office when she noticed something strange.
"When I came in on Saturday, this door was closed and locked," she said.
Once she looked inside, Trayler saw their safe had been cracked open and its contents taken.
"We opened the door and oh my God, stuff was everywhere," she said.
Financial records were missing.
