Winter Haven Officers Make A Difference In One Man’s Life
Winter Haven Officers responded to a call regarding the theft of a bicycle on Nov. 3. The victim, who is homeless, had been taken by ambulance to Winter Haven Hospital for a medical emergency while he was at the W.H.A.T. terminal on Oct. 28. The EMS personnel reported that they locked the bike for the patient. When he got out of the hospital, he returned to the terminal to find his bike had been stolen.
The victim didn’t report the theft, but as he was in front of McDonald’s on 6th St., he saw someone ride by on what he thought was his bike. At that point, he called Police in hopes officers could locate his bike. Although officers canvassed the area, they were unable to locate the bike.
Officers Farewell, Nash, Lebreton and Dickinson pooled their money together and purchased the victim, Sylvester Thomas, a bike, lock, and lights.
Way to go guys! Making a difference in our community for those in need.

“I have to share and please everyone else share….
For the first time EVER I was honored to witness such a good deed and on top of that he’s obviously a police officer! !!! I was sitting waiting for my aunts meds at her pharmacy and overheard this officer talk about this guy as if he had known him and wanted to pick up his meds. He then proceeded to say this guy whom is in wheelchair was on the streets begging for money for his meds….I said im sorry to interrupt but are you buying meds for someone you’ve known on the streets? He replied “no, I just meet him today and ask him why he was on the streets….the guy told him bc he needed his meds (he had a total of 8), the officer didn’t care how much (it was expensive) but he said I could take his pic and post as long as I let ppl know police do these things all the time!!!! He also told lady dont tell him who paid…..my heart jumped in my throat and yes I cried but I hugged him real hard and said thank you for helping someone in need without hesitation! !!! My heart is so full of warmth now!!!!! At the end the of convo the officer stated “no matter his hardships in life he has to have his medicines”….“
