TUSCUMBIA, Ala. (WHNT) - It`s something we never forget as a kid, having a bike disappear or stolen. Within the last couple of months, Tuscumbia police have collected bikes and are now trying to get them back to their owners.
Tuscumbia Police Chief Tony Logan says the station has received close to a dozen bikes they were either found by officers on patrol or by citizens on the street.
"What we've done is we've gone through and match the serial numbers or description of the bikes that we have in comparison to the reports that we have. The bikes that are left have no correspondences or correlation between them. If someone has had a bike stolen and failed to report it or didn`t' have an accurate description, we can hopefully work through that with them and maybe get the bike returned to them," said Chief Logan.
If you've lost a bike and are interested in getting it back, you can contact the Tuscumbia Police Department. But before you go to the police station, you must have some type of proof of purchase, a picture with the bike or a serial number. For more information click here.
