Heroes’ corner

Local police recently contacted North Olmsted, OH, Officer in Charge Marquitta Hayward and told her a customer had been scammed out of $9,500 that had been mailed through the Post Office.

Hayward recovered the money and returned it to the customer.

“I thought the money was gone forever,” said Patrol Officer Angel Walling. “Ms. Hayward’s attention to the matter and pleasant attitude made this a very happy ending. She truly deserves to be recognized because without her efforts, the outcome in this case would have been very different.”
