A local police department gifted a teenager a bicycle after his was stolen recently.

Someone stole a bike from 15-year-old Ben.

He and his family filed a report with the Arroyo Grande Police Department.

When officers saw the report, they said they we're impressed that Ben was working a summer job and riding the bike to work.

To help Ben out, the department decided to buy him a new bike and a bike lock.

"They have actually had the funds and the ability to go and purchase a brand new bike for Ben and a brand new lock so now he's back on the road, thanks to [the Arroyo Grande Police Department," said Bruce Carson, Ben's stepfather.

Carson also posted a video on YouTube thanking the Arroyo Grande Police Department.

The video has more than 1,600 views already.
