Vancouver police said a citizen brought in a tricycle matching the description of the stolen tricycle on Tuesday. The person told police he/she found the tricycle in the area of Northeast Stapleton Road/SR-500.

The tricycle’s owners arrived to identify it and noted significant damage to the tricycle.

According to their assessment, the tricycle is not able to be used by their son based on the extent of the damage.

The tricycle, which was donated to the family by Shriner’s Hospital, was taken from the home in the 5700 block of NE 85th Avenue.

Lance Dickson, 9, said the trike was fun and good exercise for him. Dickson received the trike in 2014 and would use it to go around the block.
