On November 24, nearly 200 trikes, which are similar to tricycles, were stolen from their storage unit. The thieves cut the lock, then emptied out much of the storage unit. They took electric fire truck and police car trikes that kids could ride around and play on. The loss is estimated to be in the thousands of dollars.
