Letter - A theft along the trail

To the editor:

On March 17, my wife and 4-year-old daughter went for a walk down the Central Lakes Trail east of Alexandria. My daughter was ridding her "Princess" bike and was tired out. My wife decided to leave it on the side of the trail, assuming that no one would ever steal a 4-year-old's Princess bike.

Well, I'm sure you see where this story is going. Yep, someone in 10 minutes time stopped and helped themselves to it. My daughter came home crying and could not understand why someone would want her Princess bike. Really? I hope you are proud of yourself! If you want the Princess bike helmet that goes along with it, look me up!
