An out of towner took a minute to send in some kind words to recognize the efforts of seventeen year veteran Detective Mike Doan. Here’s what he had to say in part:
“I arrived in your city at the Charlotte airport recently and was met by an employee who pushed me in a wheelchair from the American Airlines gate to baggage claim. I later learned that $540.00, (my grocery money) was stolen from my satchel.
I filed a police report for the theft of my cash without much hope of the case even being assigned to anyone much less any hope of getting my cash back. However, my case was assigned to Det. Doan who was wonderful to work with. Not only did he identify the suspect who stole the money, but he recovered a good portion of it. I'm sorry that it took so long for me to write this, but I wanted Det. Doan to get the recognition he deserves. I work for the Springfield, MO Police Dept. and hope that our agency would treat tourists as well as Det. Doan treated me in Charlotte.”
