FORT WORTH, Texas – When an intruder broke into her home around the Fourth of July, Patsy Caudill says she didn’t know what to do.

The intruder forced her patio door open and opened several drawers inside her home.

However, nothing was taken.

“When I investigated, nothing was missing, which led me to think it was someone prowling around the inside of the house looking for her,” Officer B.D. Jackson, a 24-year veteran of the Fort Worth Police Department, told KTVT.

A few days later, Jackson returned to Caudill’s home on his day off.

Using his own tools and supplies he purchased at a hardware store, Jackson got to work reinforcing the doors and giving Caudill peace of mind.

In addition to fixing the door, he also installed signs and locks.

Caudill wanted to show her appreciation by sending a ‘thank you’ note and a $20 bill to Jackson. Jackson mailed the money back.

“It tells you what kind of person he is- a good person, she said.
