Breaking News: Alleged kidnapping incident investigated
ENFIELD: Three teenagers from the Truro area have left one Enfield woman amazed and at a loss for words at the lengths they went to return her lost wallet.
Chrissy Jardine made what she thought would be a quick stop into the Costco at Dartmouth Crossing on Aug. 19 to pick up snacks for a work event on Thursday Aug. 21.

So then the three decided to use the address on Jardine’s driver’s license, which led them to her mother, Sharon’s, house but she wasn't home.
“They then went next door to her neighbors to ask if they knew me which she did and told the teens they could leave it with her and she would make sure I received it,” said Jardine. “The teens didn't feel comfortable with that so my mom’s neighbour took them to my sister’s house and my mother happened to be there.
