These employees’ actions are best described by the citizen’s letter which follows.
My family and I stayed at Cherry Grove Beach in North Myrtle Beach last week. Upon returning home on Saturday, I realized that I left my engagement ring and wedding ring set in the condo. I contacted the realty company whom I asked to retrieve my rings. I told the realty company precisely where I left my rings. After multiple phone calls with the realty company, they told me they sent someone to look for my rings and they were not there. I feared that my rings may have been stolen because I was absolutely certain that they were exactly where I described. So, I called the North Myrtle Beach Police Department. I spoke to Officer Best at 6:50 p.m. on Saturday and explained to him what happened. He assured me that before the end of that night he would search the condo unit. In less than one hour, Officer Best called me back to tell me he located my rings precisely where I told him they were. He explained that he was turning my rings over to the property/evidence custodian, Chris Sengle and he gave me her contact information. I called Ms. Sengle on Monday and requested that she overnight my rings to me with insurance on the package. I told her that I would pay for the shipping charges, but she told me it was a “service” of their department to return my rings to me. I received my rings today. I wanted to let you know that these two people, Officer Best and Ms. Sengle, were both extraordinarily kind to me. My mind was put at ease after my conversations with them, knowing they were taking care of these invaluable rings for me. Please extend my sincerest thanks to them for helping me. Officer Best, Chris Sengle this is truly a, “Job well done.
