Two CHP officers help fix an elderly man’s fence after a hit-and-run – Victorville Daily Press

HESPERIA • Frank Hecker woke up in the middle of the night to a commotion in his front yard.

The 89-year-old man peered out and saw a pickup truck sitting in his front yard and several people standing outside.

A California Highway Patrol officer came to the door and explained that a man had smashed into his fence.

“It took some time, but I was finally convinced they were real police officers,” said Hecker.

Officer Tad Jeffrey informed the wheelchair-bound man that his homeowner’s insurance would cover the cost of repairing the fence, but Hecker said he could not afford the $1,000 deductible. That is when Jeffrey volunteered to come back with his partner, Officer Jason Costello, to repair the fence themselves for free.
