GARLAND COUNTY, Ark. (KATV) - A Garland County deputy took action when a child's bike was stolen by helping her get a new ride.

Deputy Justin Butcher, who works at the Fountain Lake School District as a resource officer, took a report from Carrie Carr about her daughter's bike being stolen.

The deputy decided to help the girl, Dylanne, and with assistance from Hot Springs Village Walmart representatives Dominique Martineau and Grant Freeman, he got her a new bike and helmet.

Dylanne and her mother were thrilled and thankful for his gift.

"I can't believe he cared about me and my bike when he's so busy keeping everyone else safe from the bad guys," Dylanne said.

The sheriff's office said her mother thanked the deputy for showing Dylanne kindness.

"I think kids sometimes think authority figures are just there to boss people around," Carr said. "She and her sister will never forget the good side of what you guys do. I know I won't."
