SACRAMENTO — Angel Miles, whose custom made tricycle was stolen from his downtown Sacramento apartment last week, has a new set of wheels.

For 13-year-old Angel, a tricycle is much more than just a toy. He has autism, and can’t ride a two-wheeled bicycle.

Angel’s mom, Falon Miles, said a friend of a friend saw FOX40’s story on the stolen trike and offered to purchase a new tricycle for Angel.

Angel’s mom picked out the new tricycle and some accessories at Cycle Works in downtown Sacramento.

She plans on giving the new ride to her son on Wednesday afternoon.

The suspect with the stolen bike remains at large.

Miles told FOX40 on Sunday she saved for months to afford the original tricycle. And it wasn’t just any tricycle. The $700 bike was hand painted and tricked out with LED lights and sprockets. Miles says in total, the value is closer to $1,500.

Several viewers reached out to FOX40 after we aired the original story offering to purchase Angel a new tricycle. Thank you to everyone for your generosity.
