Pontiac non-profit is target of theft twice in less than two weeks

- Two generators were stolen Monday from QTMC, Inc. a non-profit organization in Pontiac that helps the homeless. 

"We're on a quest to make a change all the time," said Dave.

Dave and Diane Coleman started the organization 31-years ago.  A labor of love, the couple married for nearly 50 years, were heart broken when they found out.

"Myself I was just outraged because we help thousands of people here," said Diane.

"Tears just fell ... Thank you nobody was hurt," said Diane.

This isn't the first time the organization has experienced theft. Just last week, their storage facility and an old Mexican restaurant were robbed. The thieves stole a candy dispenser and vandalized a pop vending machine.

A few years ago, a trailer was stolen from QTMC, Inc.  But after Fox 2 covered the story, a company donated a new trailer.

"When they stole my trailer, I told my wife something good will come of it. Then, a guy called and said come get a trailer," said Dave.

In the meantime, more security measures in place and they hope the people who stole the generators will bring them back.
