Albany Police help Autistic boy get back stolen property

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Three weeks ago, officers responded to a home in the City of Albany for a report of a burglary. Upon arrival, officers met a visibly upset Messiah Hodge-Humphrey, a 13-year-old autistic boy who had some of his most favorite possessions stolen.

Messiah loves to listen to music and play interesting games on his tablet. Both, including his headphones were stolen during the burglary.

Several officers who work out of the Albany Police Center Station were determined to replace Messiah’s property. The autistic2officers immediately took up a collection and raised $400 dollars.

On Thursday, October 1, the officers picked Messiah up at his house in a police car, gave him to a tour of the police station and then took him to Walmart to go shopping. Walmart donated a $200 gift card for this very worthy cause.

Messiah shopped with the officers and was able to purchase a new i-Pad Mini and headphones.
