In a park filled with little kids on a warm Sunday afternoon, the Orland Police Department received a call regarding a syringe that was found on the floor of the public restroom.
The call from a citizen at Lely Park was received at about 4 p.m.
After calling for law enforcement assistance, the man guarded the entrance to the men’s restroom to make sure no children went in and touched the syringe.
Orland Police Sgt. Sean Johnson arrived at the scene and took possession of the syringe.
Sgt. Johnson then took the syringe to his patrol vehicle and placed the paraphernalia in a container intended for such objects.
Something the irresponsible person who left the syringe in a public restroom obviously did not do.
