    DES MOINES, Wash. - The Des Moines Police Department was able to assist the 11-year-old victim of bike theft earlier today, buying the young boy a brand-new bike.

    The bike was stolen a few days ago and officers provided the boy with a new bike today using funds from the Des Moines Police Guild, which all officers from the department contribute to.

    The department shared photos of the bike being returned on its Twitter page, saying, “He always greets us with a wave and a smile even before this. We look forward to his waves and smiles on his new bike."
