State police get letter from 9-year-old with $10 bill inside, and know they have to move straight away

Police officers and donut shops go together like salt and pepper. Or at least that’s what Hollywood would have you believe.

In actual fact, not every officer who ever lived is addicted to donuts (shock, horror), but rather donut shops were apparently one of the few places open late at night when cops first began to patrol in cars instead of on foot. As a result, they made a handy place to stop for emergency calls, filling out paper work or simply grabbing a snack and some coffee.

Since then, they’ve developed something of a reputation for being a popular haunt of police officers. It’s a good thing, too, where this story is concerned.

9-year-old Brooke was standing in line one day, waiting to buy some donut holes. But when she got to the cashier, she discovered that she didn’t have enough money …

As it turns out, there was a kind stranger waiting behind her – State Trooper Chad Savannah.

Most of us have been there: You place an order, reach the cashier and realize you don’t have enough cash. 9-year-old Brooke described the moment in a way we can all relate to.

“I was standing in line and I didn’t have enough money and I’m like, frozen,” Brooke said to the Butler Eagle. “I didn’t know what to do.”

Fortunately, Trooper Chad Savannah was behind her in line and, without missing a beat, told the cashier to add Brooke’s order to his bill.

Brooke was caught off-guard by the kind gesture and, as many young kids would in her position, she hurried out of the store after receiving the donuts.
