CLEVELAND — A 9-year-old boy was grateful after an officer replaced his stolen Pokemon cards with his own collection.
FOX 8 reported Bryce was visiting a friend when another kid came up and stole his card collection right out of his hands. He was devastated and his mother called the cops.
Officers James Grotenrath and Ken Kirk responded to the call and were able to locate the thief, but some of Bryce’s cards were missing.
"I grew up with Pokemon, I loved Pokemon as a kid and I would be heartbroken too if my cards were taken from me," Grotenrath, 26, told the news site.
After his shift, Grotenrath located his own Pokemon card collection and surprised Bryce.
"It's a priceless item, but it's better to see someone else smile, and in my book, like my partner says, it's just happy to see a citizen smile instead of always frowning upon us and looking the other way," he said.
