Bedford, VA – If you are the mystery couple who treated five Bedford County sheriff’s deputies to dinner Friday night, they’d like to thank you once again.
The deputies were on their dinner break at Applebee’s before returning to the range to train.
They exchanged polite conversation with the couple at the next table, even shared an appetizer.
On the couple’s way out, the woman slipped one of the deputies a $100 bill to pay for their meals, which the deputy tried to give back to the man with her.
“We said sir, there’s five of us here,” said Sgt. Chris Edmondson. “He said I know that and he turned around and subsequently walked out the door. We were amazed to say the least that a citizen would do that.”
The deputies put the change from the $100 toward the tip.
