Original story Nov. 6:
Kindergarten tricycles stolen from Georgia Brown
Two kindergarten tricycles were stolen from Georgia Brown Elementary School over the weekend, school officials report.
“A kindergarten teacher walked in and saw the shed was broken in to and the tricycles were gone,” says Linda McCutcheon, the school office clerk. “The kids love those things,” she says. “And they took the best ones.”
Four tricycles were taken, but two were located on the school yard. The little tricycles are painted red and have black tires. “Georgia Brown” is written on them in black Sharpie ink.
The Georgia Brown PTA commented on its Facebook page today, “If anyone knows anything please speak up. And if anyone is interested in sponsoring a replacement we would be so grateful.”
