BERLIN, CT (WFSB) -

A 5-year-old boy received an award after he found a wallet on a playground in Berlin and brought it to police.

Henry Nowik was given the Berlin Police Department Community Officer Investment Network Coin on Wednesday.

Police said Henry found a wallet at the Little People's Playground in town. He gave it to his mother, who in turn gave it to police.

The owner of the wallet went to the Berlin Police Department where he was able to retrieve his belongings.

“We could use a few more citizens like Henry. Nice job buddy,” police said on their Facebook page.
