On Saturday, SAPD tweeted a photo of Officer Loy Garcia with the most heartfelt message. In the photo, Garcia can be seen shopping in the freezer section of a convenience store.
According to the police department, Garcia responded to a call where a disabled couple alerted police that they were unable to make ends meet. Garcia decided to take it upon himself to make sure the couple was taken care of by buying them groceries.
Everyday, police officers respond to a variety of calls for service. Officer Loy Garcia recently responded to a location where a disabled couple was struggling to make ends meet. The situation touched him so much that he went to the nearest store and bought them groceries. #SAPD pic.twitter.com/FmsFWGTI2w— San Antonio PD (@SATXPolice) July 29, 2018
