On Tuesday, June 7th while blocking traffic for a structure fire at Sprigg and Morgan Oak, Officer Mathew Peters witnessed a boy riding a bicycle across Morgan Oak. A pickup truck rounded the corner and the boy attempted to use his feet to stop the bike but had to lay it down to avoid getting hit by the truck. The boy got up from the ground and Officer Peters met with him. 7 year old, Shont-tez Bell had to lay his bike down because of not having breaks. The next day Officer Peters was able to locate Bell, and take him to Walmart. Renee Fischer of Cape Girardeau Walmart was able to help with getting a new bicycle, with brakes, for Bell.
