Saturday night, the 79-year-old disabled man called dispatchers and said he had not eaten in two days. A short time later, a group of officers showed up at his door with several bags full of groceries.

Patrolmen Brian Gray, Adam Runions, Nathan Bolton, Mark Billions, and Buddy Odom spent $160 out of their own pockets to make sure the man had enough food in his kitchen to last him a month.

"I think he was shocked at the amount of food that we bought and just the fact that it was there without question," said Bolton.

The elderly man, who asked News 2 not to use his name, said he appreciates everything they did to help him. The man is on a fixed income and relies on his social security benefits each month.

He didn't have any money to buy food because someone stole his debit card last weekend.
