Officers help Pasco boy replace stolen BMX bike
PASCO, Wash. — A couple days ago, Pasco police posted on their Facebook page about a little boy named Jeremiah whose BMX bike was stolen last week.
After getting a big response from people in the community wanting to donate to help buy him a new bike, they were able to make it happen.
Police said one of the citizens who contacted them was none other than Franklin County Sheriff Jim Raymond, who said the Franklin County Sheriff Foundation already had donations ready to replace Jeremiah’s bike — Haro Downtown BMX worth more than $300.
The foundation not only purchased the boy a new bike; they also got him a new lock from Scott’s Cycle and Sport in Kennewick. The bike shop even threw in a helmet.
Officers presented the bike to Jeremiah on Wednesday afternoon.
The thief who stole the original bike has yet to be identified.
Police said the bike was taken from the 300 block of W. Bonneville St. on Oct. 17 or 18. Anyone who sees it or knows who stole it should contact dispatch at 509-628-0333 about case 19-32922. You can also send an email to Ofc. Madsen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
