Hello, thought I’d share. I’ve lived in Richmond Va my whole life & have always been a huge supporter of law enforcement. I happened to be at 7-11 on Chamberlayne Ave last week & I noticed a police cruiser pull up. As a supporter, I always make an effort to speak to officers when I have a chance. As I waited for them to enter the store, I noticed they stopped & appeared to be talking to someone outside. I purchased my items & when I went outside, I saw both officers talking to what appeared to be a man down on his luck. I waved to the officers & waited for them to finish up their business so that I could speak to them. As I waited, I noticed them go inside & come back with a sandwich & a beverage for the individual. I couldn’t help but to snap a picture of this kind hearted gesture. After the officers finished, I introduced myself & noticed that these were the same officers that I saw on the local news a few months back, purchasing a motel room for a homeless lady & her dog! I felt like I knew these gentleman & felt honored to meet them in real life! I thanked them for what I had witnessed & thanked them for taking the time to speak to me! They stated that they were from 4th precinct & to come visit anytime. Officers Saunders & Costley are truly heroes… more ways than one! I hope that you will spread the word about these two kindhearted officers & let them know that they are very much appreciated!!!
