A few weeks ago, Michael, 32, was riding his cherished two-wheeled scooter near the high school when he generously allowed another individual to test ride it. However, to his dismay, the person took advantage of his kindness and failed to return the scooter, leaving Michael devastated.

Detective Sergeant Saddler took on the investigation and quickly discovered that Michael was a kind and genuine individual. Touched by his story, Saddler and his partner, Detective Sergeant Coraci made the heartfelt decision to purchase Michael the exact same scooter with their own money. When Chief Berlin caught wind of their plan, he decided that the department would step in and cover the cost of the new scooter.

On Wednesday, the Roseville Police Department had the pleasure of meeting Michael in person to deliver the surprise. Overwhelmed with emotion, Michael couldn't contain his gratitude upon hearing the news. After taking a few spins on his new scooter, Michael expressed how the unexpected gesture had turned his rough year around.
