STANFORD -There were plenty of state troopers on hand for the shopping cart traffic jam in Wal-Mart's toy aisles Saturday.
It was the Kentucky State Police Richmond Post's annual shopping spree for less fortunate children. Each child was given $100 to spend at Wal-Mart, and a trooper to help shop.
Trooper Clyde Bertram made fast friends with Stanley Pike, 7. Before they made one complete trip around the truck-and-robot aisle, Pike's cart was full.
"I like everything toys," Pike said. "I got all kinds of toys."
When Pike spied a radio control Toyota Celica that he liked better than the monster truck already in his cart, Bertram helped him switch it.
