UPDATE: The missing bike was located on the evening of Monday, Nov. 2, 2015 thanks to a tip from the public. The bike has since been returned to the family.
Edmonton Police Service Northwest Division officers are investigating the theft of a three-wheel Norco bike belonging to a woman with Cerebral Palsy and are asking for the public’s assistance to locate the stolen property.
The Norco bike went missing from the woman’s garage sometime between 6 and 7:45 a.m. on Oct. 29, 2015 in the area of 131 Avenue and 125 Street. Police believe the woman’s garage was broken into that day, at which time the bike and other items were stolen from the garage.
The bike is described as metallic blue in colour with a white seat and a white storage container on the back of the bike. Special straps can be found on the pedals to assist with mobility.
“This bike is specially designed to assist with mobility issues and is invaluable to the owner,” said Constable Amber Maze. “We encourage anyone who may have seen the bike to contact the EPS.”
