BMX bike stolen from local swimming pool

My grandson left heartbroken and devastated by property stolen twice in one week

Is it just my opinion or is crime getting worse in our little town of Hope?

On Sept. 14, my grandson Joshua had his BMX bike taken from the swimming pool. He worked hard, cutting grass, cleaning the dog pen, and helping a neighbour build a shed to save money for his bike. The BMX is black, including the rims. The white seat cost him nearly $40 and the red handle grips were $17. If my child came home with a new bike, I would question how he obtained it. I’d like to think most parents would ask their child.

Last Wednesday, Joshua went swimming at the pool. Being Toonie Day, he had change left over – a bag of nickels. He couldn’t get the key out of the locker so he decided to put his bag of nickels in his runner. When he got out of the pool, his money was gone. Joshua was left heartbroken and devastated – twice in one week. Josh has been taught to respect people and their property and to treat people like he would like to be treated. I would think, most parents have the same values and want their children to grow up to be a respected member of society.

If anyone knows the where the BMX bike is, we would appreciate getting it back.
