UNION, Mo. (AP) _ A UPS driver is being called a hero for contacting police after seeing ``Contact 911'' scrawled on the outside of a packed he picked up in eastern Missouri.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Franklin County Sheriff Steve Pelton presented Kenneth ``Robbie'' Belew with a ``Hometown Hero'' award on Wednesday, crediting the driver with saving the life of a domestic violence victim and a child.
Belew contacted the sheriff's department on the morning of Dec. 6 after seeing the note on a package he had picked up in the Robertsville area. Officers arrested 33-year-old James Jordan, who was charged with domestic assault, sodomy and other cimes.
Police say Jordan locked a 3-year-old child in a room for several hours while assaulting a woman in the home.
