Nichols Murray, a student at Julian D. Parker Elementary in Stuart, Florida, had his bike stole on school property, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office said Friday in a Facebook post.

When crossing guard Diane Winslow saw Nichols was walking home without his bike, she asked him what happened. The boy told her his bike was stolen.

The Sheriff’s Office shared photos of the smiling fourth-grader with his new bicycle, surrounded by some of the people who helped get him his new wheels.
