Mesa, ArizonaKNXV)-When a man’s hobby was interrupted by a robbery, the corresponding police officer took a problem in his own hands to help him regain his passion, and received his own congratulations in return. ..

John Bazan’s hobby is gardening. All patio greens at Oakwood Creative Care, an Alzheimer’s disease facility in Mesa, Arizona, are treated by Bazan. About a month ago, someone broke into the facility and stole Bazan’s gardening tools.

“He was just sad. He was sad. It’s hard to understand why someone does that,” said John’s daughter, Marianne Bazan.

The case stuck to Mesa police officer Robert Zilm, who knew he had to help regain Bazan’s love for gardening.

“I went home, talked to my wife and mother, and made a plan,” said Jillm. Shortly thereafter, he replaced the stolen item and arrived at Oakwood with a bucket of tools.

With gratitude, Oakwood threw a surprise late baby shower to Jillm and his wife for Jillm’s newborn daughter. Oakwood, along with the Mesa Chamber of Commerce, offered Zirm a special gift and a small party, but thank you for taking the time to take care of Bazan and his green thumb.

“Seeing how happy he was makes me happy. That’s his joy because he’s gardening in the heat all day,” said Zirm.
