While these law enforcement officers may not have been at this college student’s house to protect her savings, they were sure to serve up the money that she lost – and more.

Kristin Villanueva and her family were on vacation when an unnamed burglar broke into their house and stole her $2,000 college fund.

The 17-year-old high school graduate and valedictorian of El Segundo High School had saved up all of the money by tutoring other students. Now, as she prepares to study materials engineering at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Kristin was heartbroken to discover the robbery.

The El Segundo Police Force then stepped in and created a GoFundMe page to raise money for Kristin.

Since they started the campaign, they have successfully raised over $5,000.

“Kristin has done everything right in her life and was a major contributor to this community,” wrote the officers. “Let’s not allow some burglars ruin her college experience!!!”
