Similar to stolen tricycle
ST. PAUL, Minn. - Police say a tip from a citizen led to the recovery of a man's adaptive tricycle that had been stolen in West St. Paul.
Police Chief Bud Shaver says a citizen called Monday night from someone saying they had seen Elliot Albright's tricycle on the 400 block of Livingston Avenue in St. Paul. When officers responded to that location the resident who lived there refused to open a locked garage, so officers were forced to leave the scene.
A short time later another tipster called 911 to say the tricycle had been spotted near the intersection of Clinton and Isabella in St. Paul. Officers were dispatched and quickly recovered the tricycle.
They are still searching for a suspect.
Albright called police early Sunday after he climbed off a Metro Transit bus and found that his special tricycle was not where he had chained it. Albright, who has autism, routinely rode the trike to the bus stop and chained it to a heavy bench. It has a value of approximately $1,800.
