Stolen bike recovered by BPD

Dear Editor,

A person can’t even go to the public pool for a few hours without having something stolen.

This is exactly what happened Wednesday, July 17. A father and son went to cool off and as they came out to retrieve their bikes and head home, our son’s bike was gone.

This saddens me, but it is a reality. People can’t be trusted – even in our “small town.”

Kudos to the Batesville Police Department. They called us at 10 p.m. Thursday to say the bike was found in Brum Woods.

Gretchen Gutzwiller,

Batesville
