A policeman from South Dakota surprised the world after arresting a DoorDash delivery driver.
Officer Sam Buhr of the Sioux Falls Police Department was captured on camera while ringing a door and delivering an Arby’s order via DoorDash to a customer last Tuesday. In the doorbell cam video later shared on Facebook, the officer can be seen ringing the person’s door while holding the order.
“I know I’m not who you’re expecting, but your driver got arrested,” he can be heard saying. He then added: “I figured I’d complete the DoorDash for you,” to which the customer responded with laughter and gratitude.
It was later revealed that Buhr had detained the original deliveryman on a warrant after stopping them for a traffic violation.
“The driver was in the process of delivering food for Door Dash. Officer Buhr completed the delivery, bringing the food to the customer,” the police department revealed to PEOPLE Magazine.
“While delivering food is not a normal part of police work, helping people is.”
The spokesperson added:
“Sioux Falls police officers regularly go above and beyond the normal job and this is just one example of that. Little things like this happen on a regular basis and while most don’t receive the attention, we realize those little things can make a big difference.”
A representative for DoorDash later expressed gratitude for the officer’s actions, and added they would investigate the arrested employee.
“The safety of our community is extremely important and we take reports of this nature very seriously,” DoorDash stated.
“We’re actively looking into this to take all appropriate actions, and have been in touch with local law enforcement to offer our help with their investigation,” they continued.
“We’re grateful to the law enforcement officer for stepping in and ensuring this customer received their order.”
