Community responds to child’s stolen bike

Posted on Friday, July 21, 2017 by 2 comments

While crime reports on FPF may not result in finding stolen items, neighbors can be counted on to help!

“I wanted to thank our community for the support we received after my son’s bike was stolen last week. We received three offers of new bikes for him (one of which he is happily riding around on) and lots of messages of support. The original bike has yet to be seen, but maybe one day it will turn up.”  • Jaime in Montpelier

Original post: “We woke up this morning to find my autistic seven year old’s bike stolen off our porch. If you’ve taken it, PLEASE bring it back. It’s worth almost nothing, but he is very attached to it. As a back up, if anyone has a 20 inch kids bike with training wheels lying around, we’d like a replacement as soon as possible. He’s going to be very upset when he realizes it’s gone.”

    There is a child’s light colored bike that has been lying on the entrance steps to Hardwick Main St Cemetery for the last day. Appears to e abandoned. I will go get it and you can email me if you think it could be yours. Send me a picture of your bike.
