    Crime

    ST. PETERSBURG — Police are accepting donations to help replace a 94-year-old's stolen tricycle.

    Richard Griffin, in his living room in St. Petersburg, FL, July 26, 2017. Griffin's bike was stolen July 18th while he was shopping at the CVS at 4260 Sixth St. S in Coquina Key Plaza. Griffin used the bike as his main means of transportation, police said, and doesn't have the $2,700 he'd need to replace it. Police released surveillance video of the theft on Wednesday, a week after a man made off with the bike, hoping it might help them find the trike's captor. Police said the motorized tricycle requires a key to operate and it's not easy to move. They're worried someone might dump it once they realize they cannot pawn it without the key.
