Thursday, Sunland Park police officials said Detective Amador Quintana was conducting a home check for a Child, Youth and Families Department referral. Quintana checked the home and it was in good order, but when he checked the fridge and saw that there was no food he asked the mother if she was planning on buying food soon, but she said she couldn't. Officials said she told Quintana they were broke and had no money for food. Quintana made a few calls and was able to get the family food from San Martin de Porras. Quintana then went to the store and with his own money bought milk, eggs and bread for the family.
Officials said these kind acts happen across the country all day and say Quintana didn’t do this for attention; he did it out of the kindness of his heart.
