A Washington couple, Courtney and Harly Forbes, were shocked to learn Monday that their tandem bicycle had been stolen from their front porch while they were sleeping. The couple, who live with Courtney's mother, Kim Turner, in Vancouver, are developmentally disabled and use the bike to get around town. The $900 tandem bike is the only mode of transportation for the two, who do not drive.
"I don't like riding by myself, because I have anxiety. I like riding with my husband," Courtney said, adding that she is "really upset, sad, and I'm hurt" that the thieves stole their bike.
A neighbor's security camera, however, captured the thieves riding by on the stolen bike. In the video, three people go past, two of them on bikes, and shortly thereafter, all three ride past---one of them now on what looks like the Forbes's tandem bicycle. The thieves allegedly propped a rocking chair under a doorknob to the house to block anyone inside from opening the front door.
