And the trike came back.
There’s a lot of smiles at the Kindale Developmental Association after the second of two stolen three-wheel bicycles was returned.
“Adam Lord, one of the Kindale individuals, is so happy the trikes are back because Adam loves riding independently,” said Cindy Masters, Kindale development officer.
The two trikes were stolen from the Seaton Centre on Polson Drive.
One was located in Polson Park and returned in late May after an article appeared in The Morning Star. The second one was also found within the park.
It was important for the agency to recover the bicycles because they are used constantly by Vernon residents with developmental disabilities.
To ensure the trikes are operating safety, Ricardo Smith, with Sun Country Cycle, offered to do any repairs.
“Three cheers for The Morning Star, Sun Country Cycle and the people who found the trikes and returned them to Kindale,” said Masters.
