He cleaned the boxes while wearing a mask and gloves, prepping the pies for safe delivery. The detective coordinated with Arvada firefighters for their big surprise at Susie's house.
The Arvada Police Department and Arvada firefighters sang her happy birthday while she watched from a window upstairs. Then they handed over the cherry pies while keeping their distance of course.
According to WCVB, Detective Dave snelling said:
We're going to give out these pies all while maintaining COVID CDC standards, maintaining our distance and using proper procedures to make sure we keep this entire family safe.
