Bike Stolen From Special Olympian

HAYDEN, Idaho. - Robert Edwards loves biking and is part of the biking team for the Coeur d'Alene Special Olympics. On Tuesday, Edwards had his bike stolen while he was working at Wal-Mart. The thief cut his lock and ran off with his bike. It was heartbreaking for Edwards, because he uses his bike to get all around town, and to work. However, Edwards isn't the only member of his team that has had his bike stolen. Nathan Smalley had his bike stolen a week ago as well, but his bike was stolen from his home. "It's just hurtful when someone wants to do that to someone," Smalley said.

Smalley uses his bike to get to work, just like Edwards. Smalley's brother bought him a new bike so he could get to work. Edwards' co-workers at Wal-Mart pooled together some extra change and bought him a brand-new bike, and a tougher lock. However, it will not work as his racing bike. Edwards' brother lent him money to buy an $800 bike to use in his upcoming race, money that he needs to pay back.

Smalley's bike was very specific. It was a 24-speed Mongoose bike with disc brakes on both wheels. It's dual suspension bike, white on the front, gray on the back with cut-off tips on the grips.

If you see a bike matching this description, please call Coeur d'Alene police.
