When Memphis, Tennessee officers investigated, they asked the conscientious boy if he’d be getting a new Xbox for Christmas.
Tontrevion told them he couldn’t ask his mother to do that because “all the money she makes goes to pay the bills.”
When the officers got back to the station and told the story, their fellow cops on the shift chipped in money for a replacement.
When they returned to the family’s home and queried Tontrevion about the Xbox, they asked him if it might be the one that was stolen.
“No, sir,” the boy told the. “Mine was older.”
Then the officers revealed this new one was for him, which moved him and his mother to tears. (video of reaction below)
“Just to be able to alleviate some of his stress, just of that day, and actually help that family in this time, like Christmas, it really was an overwhelming feeling,” said one of the police officers said.
