Happy ending after bikes stolen from Treasure House

Glendale Police, Sonoran Cycles, Lowe’s come together

Posted

Two stolen bicycles led to community members coming together in Glendale.

Back in October, two bikes were stolen from residents of Treasure House, 7815 W. Aspera Blvd. Treasure House is an active living community for young adults who have cognitive and developmental disabilities.

“It was just heartbreaking when the bikes were stolen,” Treasure House CEO Lauri Tanner said.

Glendale Police Department detectives managed to locate one of the stolen bikes, which was found partially stripped down. The other bike was not located.

Glendale Detective Mark Coyle took it a step further.

“Something was telling me we needed to do more,” he said. “How could we help out?”

He was able to secure donations from both Sonoran Cycles Bike Shop, 3780 W. Happy Valley Road, and Lowe’s to help Treasure House residents have a happy holidays.

Sonoran Cycles has offered to fix up the bike that had been stripped, and is looking to find another bike to donate to the other victim. Lowe’s, meanwhile, donated Christmas decorations, including trees and ornaments, to Treasure House.

All representatives brought the cheer to Treasure House on Dec. 1.

“I can have my freedom back,” said Tray, one of the victimized residents, whose last name is being withheld.
