Deputy buys boy bike following birthday present theft
BATON ROUGE - A boy is celebrating again after an EBRSO deputy bought him a new bicycle after his was stolen.
EBRSO shared a photo on their facebook page, showing the moment Captain Ricky Klug gave Joseph the new ride.
According to the boy's mother, Joseph received a bike for his birthday. It was recently stolen, and his mother said she could not afford a new one.
Yolanda Williams thanked Klug in a post she shared on EBRSO's facebook page.
"Captain Ricky Klug has given my son more than a bike," Williams said. "He has also restored lost faith Joey (and some of us as well) had toward people in the world."
"You are giving back to an entire community through my child. I salute you sir, and thank you again," Williams added.
EBRSO shared Williams post Thursday, thanking the EBRSO burglary division, and noting "the look on [Joseph's] face is priceless!".
