A La Plata Police went above and beyond the call of duty when he found a little girl’s stolen toy dragon.
On Monday morning, Sgt. Robert Bagley someone tagged him in a post on Facebook. The comment was on a post from Jason Hendricks, who took to Facebook to try and find the thief who stole his daughter’s toys from their yard.
“Evie was playing with her toys in the yard Sunday evening, but as she turned in for the night, a crook lurking in the darkness was caught on surveillance camera entering her yard and making off with her prize possessions: a plastic dinosaur and a plastic dragon,” Hendricks told Fox5DC.
The full post reads:
“My daughter plays outside for hours with her dinosaurs and dragons. And she has done this daily since she was about three. It doesn’t matter if it’s raining, snowing, or blazing sun. She absolutely enjoys digging with them and making anything that contains mud and plants for them eat. Because the dinosaurs and dragons are rarely clean and don’t like baths we ask that they stay outside. They are definitely not “inside pets”, but she treats them just as well. It was pretty sad when she came to me this morning and said two of her favorites were missing from underneath the apple tree where she played until 9 PM Saturday night. I decided to investigate and review our video footage. I am very surprised to find someone coming into our yard and toting away toys. I sure hope that this person thought the toys needed a little adventure and will be returning them soon and I hope these dinos and dragons find their way back to their rightful owner. #toystory be on the look out for #dinosaurs and #dragon @ Town of La Plata”
