A couple months ago Harly Forbes traded in his Schwinn Varsity for a tandem bicycle he could share with his wife, Courtney. The couple are developmentally delayed, and bikes are the only way they can easily get around. On Monday morning the family woke up to find out thieves had cut a security cable, riding away on the bike. They even propped a rocking chair against the door knob of the front door, just in case someone heard them.
