It turns out the guy had made the original call wondering if the police could bring him some food; he hadn’t eaten in two days and there wasn’t a way he could leave his home. Even if there were a way he could get out the former “caretaker” had robbed him blind so he had no way to pay for anything anyways. When officers Brian Gray, Nathan Bolton, Buddy Odom and Adam Runions heard the call they all decided to check it out and learned the whole truth.
A group of officers from Mount Pleasant, Tennessee received one of the most heartbreaking calls of their careers recently when a 79-year-old man requested a bit of assistance. It turns out the old guy had once had a caretaker, but that person did anything but. The caretaker the old man had hired decided instead to clean out his savings and vanish, leaving the man destitute and without help. Unfortunately the winter hadn’t been kind to the elderly gentleman either, and he was eventually forced to call the police for some assistance.
