A welfare check turned into garden chores for a police officer in Orono this week.

After being called to check on a resident this week, Officer Matt Siltala noticed her yard was looking somewhat "unkempt."

When she explained that she doesn't have anyone to mow for her, her grabbed her mower and got to work.

"I cannot say how proud stuff like this makes us," Orono PD said on Facebook.

The post attracted more than 100 comments on Facebook and 250 shares, as well as prompting inquiries from people who are interested in providing more regular help for the resident.

The police department says it'll do some checking out and get back to those who have shown an interest in helping.
