Victim of Stolen Tricycle Needs It Back

A Hamilton man has had his mobility severely restricted after a thief stole his unique tricycle from an underground parking lot at his residence. The Schwinn Meridian Adult Comfort Trike is the male’s sole method of transportation and was stolen shortly after 12:30 a.m. on October 28, 2019.

On October 28, 2019, a resident living at the Olympia Apartments on 150 Charlton Avenue East in Hamilton filed a police report regarding his stolen bike. The apartment video shows a male waiting outside for an opportunity to slip through the garage door when a vehicle enters. He then targets the bike and cuts off two securing locks. Prior to leaving, he blocks the garage door sensors so it will remain open, allowing him to easily ride the bike out.

The owner of the tricycle has limited mobility and the loss of the bike has significantly impacted his independence. The tricycle is distinctive and the likelihood of another bike being used locally would be unusual.

If you see this blue tricycle or have information that can assist police in the investigation, please contact Central Patrol Staff Sergeant at (905)546-4725.
