TEXARKANA, TX (WATE) – Someone in a Texarkana, Texas had a little bit of fun with the local police department.

“Thank you for what you do for us every day, with or without donuts,” wrote one woman.
“Now isn’t this what life should be about… a funny, harmless joke and a good sense of humor on your part. I love it! Thanks for sharing,” wrote another.
“They forgot the coffee, so it’s a 50/50 shot,” wrote another person.
