Young children become innocent victims of theft

Dear Editor;
I have two grandsons that are in my care, Austin and Wyatt, four and two years old. Sweet and innocent little boys. For being fun loving, caring, and genially happy boys, Grandpa bought a little 110cc quad for them to enjoy together. Austin and Wyatt were so excited and proud to be sharing this with their Grandpa.

Dear Editor;

I have two grandsons that are in my care, Austin and Wyatt, four and two years old. Sweet and innocent little boys. For being fun loving, caring, and genially happy boys, Grandpa bought a little 110cc quad for them to enjoy together. Austin and Wyatt were so excited and proud to be sharing this with their Grandpa.

On the morning of July 23 at 7:15 am, we discovered the quad missing from our fenced-in back yard. Austin doesn’t understand that there are selfish, thoughtless people in our world. He says when he is bad, he has to say he is sorry, and give back the toy that he took. Why can’t this person just say “sorry and give back the quad?”

Whoever stole this quad from our back yard, you stole from two little boys, Austin and Wyatt.

Maybe you have two little boys that you stole it for? If so, I hope they have as much fun with it as Austin and Wyatt did. Although I do hope your two little boys learn respect and compassion from someone other than yourself, because you don’t have any. And if you stole it because you are tough? Well, anyone can be tough when they are taking ‘candy from a baby.’

If anyone knows anything about this little quad, or any other item that may have stolen from children, please show you care by contacting the Ponoka RCMP.
