There seem to be some thieves stealing kids’ bikes around the 60th block of Oakes in Everett. I have no doubt they are kids themselves.
The bikes that were stolen are bikes that my brother (age 14) and cousin (15) worked hard for. These are not just everyday $200 bikes, these bikes cost anywhere from $500 to over $1,000. That’s not even considering the extra time and money spent in making these bikes just the way they wanted them. I am sure this is the reason why they were stolen.
Kids these days are told to stay out of trouble and find other things to devote their time to rather than going around causing this type of trouble. What are you to do after you have spent so much time and your own hard-earned money into a bike that just gets stolen? I would be a little irritated, to say the least, about experiencing this, only to be told by the authorities, “There in nothing we can do.” What kind of message are we sending to the kids?
This is the fifth bike that has been stolen from our house and many others have been stolen from this area. Where are the parents of these children who are stealing these bikes?
I know that the authorities have more important cases to work on, but if these kids do not get caught and reprimanded, the authorities can be assured that these kids will only move on to bigger things. And the authorities will be seeing them again.
