Girl’s stolen bike replaced by Big Horn Co-Op manager and staff

(Riverton, WY) – When Kerri Beth Shideler and her daughter Anni returned to their home on July 21st after being gone for the weekend, they were devastated to find out Anni’s bike that she had for less than a month had been stolen.

The next day, Chance Anderson, manager of the Big Horn Co-Op, reached out to Kerri to let her know his staff may have identified the bike thief with surveillance video.

The footage allegedly showed someone attempting to fix a flat tire at the Co-Op, before leaving it by the dumpster. The bike was then taken sometime over the course of the night.


When Anni and Kerri showed up the next day to view the footage, they were surprised to find out that Chance and his crew had all pitched in to buy Anni a brand new version of the exact same bike.

“I am blown away by their efforts and generosity! Thank you Kaylee Jo Klaahsen for going the extra mile to make my girls day brighter! Her tires are full of air and she is ready to roll again!” Kerri stated in a Facebook post.

“Thank you all for restoring my faith in humanity and showing my daughter there are way more good people in the world than bad!”
