Bikers Deliver Toys To Sick Children, Despite Thefts

They asked for help after thieves broke in and stole all the toys and food for their charity. Now, a Lexington bikers club says an outpouring of donations has brought a brighter Christmas to many in need.

The Bopsters Motorcycle Club came roaring up to Shiners Hospital on Saturday, unloading two times more toys than they had before this week's burglary.

The Bopsters tell 27 NEWSFIRST many of the toys donated after the burglary were from disadvantaged people, barely able to afford gifts for their own families.

The bikers also delivered gift baskets with turkeys in them to needy families in the area.

Police arrested two brothers, earlier in the week, for stealing nearly $2000 worth of donations from the Bopsters.

    I am glad that the brothers were caught, I know Bill Adams personally and I know that he was really upset, when it comes to children and families that need help he will do his best at helping them (always no matter what) I have seen him first hand help people in need. He is a great father and papaw to his children and others. I'm sure it upset him deeply when he found out that the toys and food were stolen for drugs, now if they were stolen because of someone needing those things he would have not said a word. He is the best man you could ever meet all of the bikers that I have ever meet will help and do anything for you, they are the sweetest people that you will ever meet (I'm also talking about you Billy Adams). When people see bikers they think that they are trouble well I got news for you "THEY ARE NOT" Dont judge people before you meet them and that is what usually happens when they see a bunch of normal people riding and having a good time and helping others.
