Charges have been dismissed against a woman accused of assaulting a Goodwill employee when she tried to get back family heirlooms she accidentally dropped off at the Goodwill collection trailer.“I’m 54 years old and had never been in any trouble until this,” said Sandra Luna after charges were dismissed Tuesday. “It still makes me sick thinking about it and knowing I’ll probably never get my pictures back.”Luna, who has been battling cancer, was hit with assault charges after an incident that happened at the Goodwill donation trailer at Plaza Shopping Center. She went to the trailer to drop off some items, but while doing so she inadvertently left some family heirlooms including some priceless hand-stitched pictures given to her by a family member many years ago.
