Officer Larry DePrimo
The man once identified as homeless as a New York City police officer gave him a pair of boots in Times Square last fall has been tracked down to an apartment in the Bronx.
The homeless man seen getting boots from a New York City police officer in a photo that went viral is not actually homeless.
Asked about the $100 all-weather boots Officer Larry DePrimo gave him, Jeffrey Hillman said he has hidden them because “they are worth a lot of money.”
“The officer said, ‘I have these size 12 boots for you, they are all-weather. Let’s put them on and take care of you,’” Foster said in a post on the NYPD’s Facebook page.
