Augusta just like any city has it's own share of petty crime. The kind of crimes that just really get under your skin.

On the flip side of that, there are so many people in our great community that go out of their way to make Augusta a better place to live.

This was just illustrated by a crime that took place at Fast Eddie's Express Car Wash on Western Ave, in Augusta.

One of the employees that work there had noticed that his bike that he used as transportation to and from his job at Fast Eddie's Express Car Wash was stolen right from the side of the building, in broad daylight.

According to the post on Fast Eddie's Facebook page, a customer who was waiting for his wash overheard the commotion about the stolen bike. He relayed to the employee how sorry he was that his bike was stolen, and how angry it made him.

Now, this could be the end of the story...but, it's not. That customer retuned awhile later with a brand new bike for the employee who was at a loss.

Incidentally, the guy that stole the bike was caught trying to sell it and was arrested and charged with multiple charges.

To sum things up, I think Fast Eddie's said it best "You have brightened every one of our employee's day and restored a little faith in humanity!"

It's nice to know that sometimes there really is a happy ending!

Be kind to each other out there!
