Edmonton Police seek public’s assistance locating disabled gentleman’s custom-designed tricycle

Edmonton, Alberta – The Edmonton Police Service is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a custom-designed tricycle that was stolen Sept. 4, 2020 from an underground parking garage in downtown Edmonton.

The tricycle was custom designed for Kenneth Thomas, a 68-year-old disabled gentleman living with Cerebral Palsy. The tricycle (see photos below) was stolen sometime between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. that Friday morning, from a storage locker located in the underground parking garage of the complainant’s apartment residence near 93 Street and 101 Avenue.

Thomas did not discover the theft until Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020, at which time a report was filed with police.
