Instead of issuing traffic tickets, Lowell police helped warm hearts recently by handing out presents to unsuspecting drivers.
A video posted to Youtube shows officer Scot VanSolkema pulling over drivers for minor traffic offenses–violations police normally don’t stop people for.
While questioning the drivers, officer VanSolkema asked what they would like for Christmas. A team at the nearby Meijer was listening by radio and quickly chose and wrapped the gifts within 10 to 15 minutes.
Officer VanSolkema then presented the drivers with a wrapped present. The reaction is a joy to watch: disbelief, laughter, gratitude, and even tears.
