9-year old Bryce of Cleveland, Ohio has been collecting Pokémon for 3 years. His impressive collection is his pride and joy, carefully purchased and preserved.
Then someone stole it.
Bryce was carrying his collection in a binder to a friend's house. Then another kid robbed him and ran off with the collection.
Bryce's mother called the police. The responding officers were James Grotenrath and Ken Kirk. Grotenrath, at 26 years old, is young enough to have enjoyed Pokémon when it first came out. He had been building his own collection for many years.
But in an incredible act of generosity, Officer Grotenrath gave the whole thing to Bryce. Fox 8 Cleveland (autoplay video) reports:
He returned to his house, and gave up his own Pokemon collection as well as other cards he had stored.
"It's a banned card of Pokeman and there's only about ten of these in the world and I have one of them," explained Bryce.
"It's a priceless item, but it's better to see someone else smile, and in my book, like my partner says, it's just happy to see a citizen smile instead of always frowning upon us and looking the other way," said Grotenrath.
The police were also able to find the thief and return most, but not all, of Bryce's original collection.
