Police in Freeport, Texas used their investigation skills to track down a different kind of culprit.
While a group of officers were enjoying their New Year’s Eve dinner at Sweet T’s, a couple that saw them decided to intervene.
Anna Grant and her husband, James, who both are military veterans, felt it in their hearts to thank the officers. But they left them with more than a few kind words; Anna and James paid the officers’ bill.
Touched by the couple’s kindness, the officers went to work to track them down to properly thank them.
“It’s nice to see someone appreciate what we do. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and warm that day. We enjoyed it.” Officer Houston told KHOU.
