BOUNTIFUL, Utah (ABC4) – New high score!

Some Bountiful police officers couldn’t help themselves when someone returned a lost Nintendo Switch to the department.

Police say the device was returned to them after it was left behind at North Canyon Park in Bountiful.

An officer posted about the lost Switch on the department’s Facebook page saying, “I’ve beaten all your high scores and spent all your gold coins and I’m bored now so you can come pick it up.”

Afterwards, another one of their officers picked up the Switch and “leveled them up and earned back a few coins,” Bountiful police say.

The Switch was eventually returned to its owner, who will have some work to do to reclaim their high scores.
