NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – A North Myrtle Beach police officer was treated to a free meal, thanks to the kindness of a stranger.

According to a post on the North Myrtle Beach Department of Public Safety’s Facebook page, an officer went through the drive-thru at a local Sonic. When he got to the window to pay, “to his surprise,” the car in front of him had picked up the tab.

That generous citizen also left a note for the cashier to hand to the officer. It said “Back the Blue! Have a nice day!” and was signed “Pamela.”

“What an awesome community to live in and serve!!” the NMBDPS post stated.
