A 5-year-old boy dropped off 'guardian angels' at the Racine County Sheriff's Office Tuesday afternoon.

The child, Victor, painted angels on rocks in hopes of keeping deputies safe while on patrol.

Officer John Hetland was off-duty when he intervened in an armed robbery at Racine restaurant Teezers.

Funeral services for Hetland are Wednesday at Carthage College's Seibert Chapel.
