10-year-old's bike stolen from locked north Spokane garage

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

A 10-year-old boy in Spokane is learning a hard lesson about life. He woke up Wednesday morning to find something he had worked all summer to buy had been stolen from his locked garage.

Now the family is upset that someone would do that to their son and are hoping whoever took it will do the right thing.

Late Tuesday night someone broke into the Leighty family's garage in north Spokane. Thomas says the hardest part about the break-in was telling his son Nolyn that his brand new bike he worked hard for and rode to school every day was gone.

Over the summer the 10-year-old worked to save up enough money to get a brand new bike after wearing out his old one. Nolyn says he doesn't understand why someone would take it, especially during the winter months.

Nolyn's dad just hopes that whoever took it realizes all the hard work his son put in to getting the bike and what it means to him.

Thomas Leighty says he's already installed new locks on his garage. If you've seen Nolyn's bike or have any information, call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.

Spokane Police say one of the best ways to make sure your bike gets returned to you if it's stolen and then found is to register it. For information on how to do that, click here: https://my.spokanecity.org/account/registrations/bicycle/
