Mt. Juliet Boy Scout Troop 1204 got some help from an Mt. Juliet Police Department Sergeant after their equipment trailer was stolen, leaving them with no camping supplies.
Mt. Juliet police said Sgt. Cory Cook heard about the Troop’s trailer being stolen back in November and wanted to find a way the department could help replace it and the equipment stolen.
According to a release, he contacted Boy Scout Troop 911 and organized a service project at the department’s firearms training facility.
The scouts collected over 2200 pounds of brass ammunition shells. The scouts traded the shells for money and collected $2,800 for the Troop. The money was given to Troop 1204 to help cover the trailer.
Sgt. Cook was recognized by the Boy Scouts for his effort and the Troops gave him plaques.
