The Chico Police Officers Association recently made life a little easier for a man who had his sole means of transportation stolen from outside a business on Mangrove Avenue.
A Chico resident named Mike was recently the victim of a bike theft, and while police were able to recover the bike, it had been damaged beyond repair.
The officers who handled the call suggested that the Chico Police Officers Association (C.P.O.A.) may be able to replace the bike.
With the help of Steve O'Bryan at Pullins Cyclery, a replacement bike was found and restored.
On Monday, O'Bryan and C.P.O.A. President Peter Durfee presented Mike with his new bike, a new helmet and a bike lock.
Cyclists can help fight bike thefts by using locks, keeping records of your bikes serial numbers and reporting any suspicious activity.
