On February 15, Joshua, 17, was walking through the busy Cumberland Farms parking lot on Elm Street when he spied a wallet on the ground. His curiosity piqued, Joshua picked up the wallet, finding over $400 in cash inside. Also inside the wallet was the identification of the wallet's owner, a 32 year-old Saco woman. When the lucky victim was eventually located by officers, she confirmed that all of her cash was still inside.
In this day and age, it goes without saying that the wallet's owner was extremely fortunate that it happened to be Joshua, a Thornton Academy student, who found the wallet. Joshua's actions exemplify good citizenship, and at Officer Jeff Cook's request, School Resource Officer Monica Fahy will be awarding Joshua a Challenge Coin on behalf of the Police Department in recognition of his honesty.
