EDITOR:This concerns the letter written to the editor published Monday, June 11, 2012 in The Daily News called "A dream of reality?"
This letter concerning the theft of my 10-speed Schwinn Sierra dirt bike was written on Thursday, May 24, 2012, after I had been told by the investigating police officer that the so-called suspect had not been interrogated as of this date.
I questioned the police officer on why, and requested that I only wanted my dirt bike back.
The police officer and his partner had been called to the apartment complex on the night of Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at midnight for a disturbance from apartment number 5, down the hall from my apartment number 4.
I am sorry and apologize that this letter has disturbed people (pawn shop owner, police, etc.) and hopefully, the understanding that as a 62-year-old disabled veteran with bad circulation in both legs that the taking of my only form of transportation to get around the town, had been stolen.
I've learned since that the pawn shop business does keep records of all transactions in the business and that the business is not just a cash in hand business.
It never occurred to me to go and check with the prosecuting attorney office for any kind of help or understanding of what all had been transpiring.
