ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – On Saturday morning one Albuquerque Police officer went above and beyond the call of duty.

911 dispatchers were receiving numerous calls of an older gentleman in a wheelchair asking for money at the intersection of Wyoming and Montgomery. Sergeant Jim Edison with APD took the call.

When he arrived he found Timothy Scott, and asked him why he was on the street corner. Scott told the officer he was just released from the hospital, and was hungry.

Edison then gave Scott the lunch his wife packed for him, and enlisted the help of Faith Lutheran Church, a ministry that specializes in helping those with special needs.

The church and APD was able to get Scott a new wheelchair by the end of the day. His old wheelchair will be refurbished and passed along to someone in need.
