Bike theft is unfortunately a big issue in Northern Colorado. I am on multiple Northern Colorado-focused Facebook and I see multiple bike theft posts every week.

Seeing a social media post about a child's bike being stolen is especially disheartening. The Loveland Police Department received a report that a Loveland child, Knox, had his bike stolen right before his birthday.

The Loveland Police Department stepped up to the plate and purchased the boy a brand-new bike.

Meet Knox!

Knox is about to have a birthday and was very upset to find his bike was stolen from in front of his house.

Officers couldn't stand to see him upset and took it upon themselves to turn his birthday around by purchasing a bike for him with their own money.

Needless to say, Knox was so happy and immediately put a police badge sticker on the bike.

Happy birthday, buddy.
