Clearwater police give carjacking victim a new Bible

CLEARWATER — Two teenagers stole a woman's car outside Morton Plant Hospital last week and crashed it on a dead-end road in Pinellas Park.

Susan Biggs got her Chevrolet HHR back, but her Bible, which had been inside, was missing.

On Monday, Biggs was at work at the hospital when police called her about 5:30 a.m.

"Of course, I thought it was something bad," said Biggs, a 57-year-old licensed practical nurse. "I'm like, oh God, what now?"

When she arrived at the hospital lobby, about six officers were waiting with a new Bible, inscribed with the phrase, "From Your Friends at the Clearwater Police Department."

The hospital had also given her a new Bible.

Her stolen Bible, which she purchased a few years ago at Walmart, is still missing.

"I'm praying for them," Biggs said of teens arrested in the case. "They're young boys and they still have a lot ahead of them."
