KSAX-TV/KRWF-TV reports how convenience store employee Brent Zuhlsdorf, who is studying at Alexandria Technical College to become a police officer, ran after a thief who’d apparently stolen something, tracked him down and then helped police locate him.
Alexandria Police Chief Richard Wyffels told the station:
I’m going to make sure that we recognize him in some form. We want to appreciate him and his willingness to help out.
Give that guy some extra class credit.
