BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — When deputies arrived to check on an elderly woman Tuesday, they noticed a scarcity of food in her home and began an investigation into possible elder abuse.
The deputies saw a grocery list on the counter and went to the nearest grocery store, sheriff’s officials say in a Facebook post. They returned to the Taft Highway home with bread, milk, meat, water, toilet paper and other necessities.
“We’re so proud of the work our department does on a daily basis,” the post says. “Great job deputies!”
