Crime Trackers: Community steps up to help disabled woman after tricycle stolen

TUCSON – After a woman had her special needs tricycle stolen last week, the community has rallied together to show their support.

On Monday, News 4 Tucson’s Lupita Murillo reported a Crime Trackers story about Lindsey Trausch. The 39-year-old suffers from cerebral palsy as a result of cyst that was discovered in her brain when she was 11 months old. Since the discovery of the cyst, she has had over 75 neurosurgeries.

Since the story aired, several people have reached out to see how they can help Trausch.

In response, Traush and her mother, Leslie wanted to share the following message with the community.

Our family truly appreciates your concern and outpouring of support for Lindsey. Thank you for your kind offer, however we won’t need another trike or recumbent. Lindsey has a backup recumbent trike which needs to be rebuilt after a previous thief destroyed it. We are in the process of relocating Lindsey to a safer area with a yard to secure her bike in.

Anyone who has information about the tricycle is advised to contact police or call 88-CRIME.
