Carrol County police’s search for a 62-year-old turned into somewhat of a humanitarian feat as Sheriff Williams ended up paying $20 for a man’s phone bill before being able to use the cell signal to locate him.
Apparently, Verizon’s operator refused to connect the signal unless the Sheriff was willing to chip in for the bill. After some discussion, Sheriff Williams gave in and “funded” the search, finding the unconscious man.
It's always nice to see telcos care the same as banks and insurance companies. Brings tears to our eyes, really.
