It was just a regular day for this 9-year-old boy until his most prized possession was stolen right out from under his arm–his binder of Pokémon cards.

Bryce had been collecting the cards for three years, so when an older boy grabbed the binder while he was walking to his friend’s house in Cleveland, he was heartbroken.

After his mom called the police, the thief was discovered in a nearby neighborhood with the collection. Some of the cards, however, were already missing.

The cop investigating the theft, Officer Jimmy Grotenrath of the Cleveland Police Department’s 4th District, empathized with the boy’s sorrow, since he happened to be a Pokémon card collector himself.

The 26-year-old went home to rummage through his belongings until he unearthed his own stash from his youth and gave them as a gift to Bryce.

“He was grinning from cheek to cheek,” Grotenrath told CNN. “He said he had two uncles who were Cleveland police officers as well…and he told his mom he has a brand-new favorite officer.”

Grotenrath announced to some of his friends on Facebook that the act of kindness was all in a day’s work.

“Anything we can do to put a smile on a citizens face, is a job well done in our book,” he wrote.SPREAD the Love: Share the Kindness…
