After a heart-warming story yesterday about many of the thousands of stolen bikes recovered after the Igor Kenk bust being donated to youth programs, the Star is reporting this morning that he “wants his puppies back”:
In an unexpected turn of events, the convicted bike-nabber showed up at the Cabbagetown Youth Centre on Monday where nearly 2,000 bikes seized from his property in 2008 were being donated to inner-city youth…
A peevish Kenk told the Star he still considers the bikes his property and called it “completely and utterly irresponsible” to have them “thrown in the garbage.”
“This is like (taking) Ferrari or Lamborghini cars, throwing them as scrap,” Kenk said.
He added, “Of course they’re my bikes. Think of them as my puppies …”
“I would love to buy some of my property back.”Wed, Feb 24: Come to the Toronto Bike Awards!
