Police Officers Buy Back An Elderly Couple's Wedding Ring That Was Pawned To Buy Groceries
January 27, 2015
Cornwall, Ontario police officers went above and beyond the call of duty by helping an elderly couple buy back a wedding ring that was pawned to buy groceries.
City cops were attending what they believed was a domestic call at a home involving an elderly couple who were in the midst of an argument. Upon visiting the home, police discovered that an elderly woman was suffering from dementia. They further determined that the husband had recently pawned his wedding ring in an effort to purchase groceries.
The couple had been married 54 years and the husband admitted he was finding it difficult to not only care for his wife, but to put food on the table.
Police quickly began canvassing among themselves and raised $150 to purchase groceries for the couple, as well as $130 to buy the ring back from a local pawn shop.
The officers who helped are expected to receive a commendation from the police services board for their act of kindness.
