Cop Wakes Up To Find His Bike Stolen And A Note From The Thief
Many of us would agree that it is morally wrong to take something that doesn't belong to you, regardless of the circumstances. There may be times, however, when even an honest person finds themselves in a situation and takes something that doesn't belong to them. That was the case with the teenage girl who stole a bike from a police officer. He then found a letter that explained why his bike was stolen. The 19-year-old who stole the bicycle apologise for taking it without permission. She had been out late and needed to get home, which was 16 miles away. “I had to walk from Radford to Blacksburg at 2am [sic]because of drunk boys, a dead phone, and no money/rides in Radford,” the note read. “Regardless, I had every intent to return it to you. I saw the sheriff car and hoped you would understand a 19 year old girls [sic] rationale.” The anonymous note was signed "M" and she let the police officer know that the bicycle did help her to get home safe. In her words: “I’m genuinely sorry and hope you can forgive me for returning it so late.”The police officer penned his own response and he posted it to Facebook and hope that she would see it and contact him. It turns out he has a girl that is a few years younger than the girl who took his bicycle. He was concerned about her safety rather than her decision to steal his bicycle. He advised her to know her surroundings, because many teenage girls have gone missing in that type of situation.
