Fenon had just seen children in the area. It was around 8:30 in the morning, right when kids are going to school. Fearing the gun could easily fall into the wrong hands, Fenon decided to take it to the police station a few blocks away.
“I was hoping it was just a toy gun, but when I realized it was real, I knew I had to take action,” said Fenon.
Fenon’s supervisors are incredibly thankful that he took such quick action.

Operations Supervisor Fred Treu echoed those sentiments. “Fenon very well could have saved someone’s life.”
Fenon received a special commendation from his supervisors under Customer Operation’s Quick Thanks program. The veteran employee will celebrate his 18th service anniversary in March. This is the first time he has found a gun while on duty and hopes it will be his last.
