Good Citizen Reward

Friday, December 27, 2002

Paying attention and being civic minded paid off for 12-year old Justin Boyd. Manila Mayor Melvin Browning presented Justin with a Good Citizen Reward of $50.

Browning's car was parked near the Methodist Church on Friday night when Justin witnessed the car being hit.

Justin immediately contacted Police Chief Jackey Hill.

"Thanks to the alertness of this young man, the person was caught," Browning said. "I appreciate him for being a good citizen."

There was $1,900 damage to Browning's vehicle.

Justin is 12 years old and in the sixth grade at Manila Elementary School.
