FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. — A Forsyth County deputy was caught being kind at a local Sheetz, according to the sheriff’s office.

Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office shared the story to Facebook on Monday morning.

A woman with a disability reportedly asked Deputy Chris Owen if he would pump her gas for her.

While the two were talking, the deputy learned the woman didn’t have enough money to cover the amount of gas she needed to make it all the way home.

That’s when the deputy decided to fill up the tank and foot bill out of his own pocket.

“This job isn’t just about carrying a gun and a badge — it’s about serving others,” the sheriff’s office said.
