Lost THEN Found Story—-The SPD would like to share the following lost and found story. During these difficult economic times, the following story deserves recognition:
Mr. Adam C., came into the station on May 3, 2020 to turn in a wallet that he had found. There was $767 in cash, plus cards and ID, in the wallet. The ID belonged to Eric M. in Somerville. The SPD sent a patrol car to notify Eric that someone had found his wallet and turned it in to the Somerville Police Department. Eric later came into the station to pick up his wallet and Ofc. DuVal was able to inform him that his cash was still in his wallet, to which he said, “$765?” and was told it was in fact $767. He was thrilled and thankful and wanted to thank the person who turned it in. At the time Ofc. DuVal did not have Adam’s information. A few hours later, Adam called the station to inquire about the wallet he had turned in and wanted to make sure that the owner received it. Ofc. DuVal informed Adam that the owner had in fact been contacted and picked up his wallet and was incredibly grateful to Adam for turning it in to the station. Ofc. DuVal informed Adam that Eric was looking to thank him and wanted to pass along his contact info. It is residents like these that remind us during these challenging times that caring for one another can make someone’s day a little better.
