ST. LUCIE COUNTY, Fla. — When a woman had her bicycle stolen, the full-time waitress resigned herself to walking 30 minutes each way to work. That’s when a pair of sheriff’s office employees stepped in.
According to the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office, the deputies heard about the woman, identified as Nikki, and knew they had to do something.
Traffic Crash Investigator Susie Dorio and Major Brian Hester presented Nikki with the new bike earlier this month, the agency said in a Facebook post.
“Keep up the hard work Nikki!” the agency wrote.
A week later on August 21, the agency posted about a similar incident involving a different woman.
“Deputies Dietrich and Lee presented Florie with a new bike to help her get to work and back each day,” the agency wrote.
