A Portland area man feels very fortunate because he got his stolen bicycle back after only a few hours. Paul Gilmour said his bike was taken and the thief brought it back, along with an apology and some money to pay for the lock he broke. Gilmour said in the letter, the man admitted to taking the bike, being out of work, and struggling with an addiction. He said he was stunned, both because the bike had been taken, and because it was returned so quickly. He plans to use the money to buy a better lock. Gilmour said, “I had an amazing roller coaster ride of emotion today going from freaking out to wondering what happened to by bicycle that I don’t have the means to replace, being a student, too grateful and just in shock that I actually got my stolen bicycle back.”— Jim L.
