News 4 viewers help collar alleged shoplifter

What a surprise to run into the Stanz family from Hamburg. They operate Outback Kettle Corn, which is a personal favorite of mine. I got to know this close-knit and determined family after Staff Sgt. John Stanz was seriously wounded while serving our country in Afghanistan. John suffered life-changing injuries. It was good to see him and his parents, John and Sandy, smiling today.
