Officer returns flying wallet to road-tripper
TriMet Police Deputy Adam Zishka goes (literally) out of his way to find Texan traveler, return her possessions
By Bob Heye
PORTLAND, Ore. — There’s obviously no TriMet service in Cascade Locks. Yet that’s exactly where TriMet transit police deputy Adam Zishka found himself earlier this week. Turns out, going out of your way to help somebody sometimes means literally going out of your way.
Zishka heard a report on Tuesday that somebody had seen a wallet go flying off the back of a truck near 181st and Sandy. He tracked it down. “Inside, I found credit card, social security card, driver’s license from a gal from Texas,” he said.
It turns out, the woman was in the middle of a 4,600 mile road trip. Zishka got her phone number from her cell provider and called her.
