Police officer gives child his own Pokemon collection after collection was stolen

By Cox Media Group National Content Desk

CLEVELAND —

A Cleveland police officer has become a hero to a 9-year-old Ohio boy whose Pokemon collection was stolen.

Bryce Angelone had been collecting the cards for about three years and he said they meant a lot to him since he began trading with friends.

He had been walking to a friend's home last week when another child took his binder of cards out of his hands and ran away, WJW reported.

Bryce's mother called police to report it, who ended up finding the binder.

But the sad news was that some of Bryce's treasured cards were missing.

James Grotenrath, one of the officers who responded, went above the call of duty.

He went to his home and found his own Pokemon collection to give to Bryce.

Some of the cards in Bryce's collection are rare.

"It's a banned card of Pokemon and there's only about 10 of these in the world and I have one of them," Bryce told WJW.

"It's a priceless item, but it's better to see someone else smile, and in my book, like my partner says, it's just happy to see a citizen smile instead of always frowning upon us and looking the other way," Grotenrath said.

Police told WJW that the child who took the cards is a few years older than Bryce. He got a "good talking to," but they didn't file charges against him, WJW reported.
