REWARD: Biker’s Harley stolen while he was buying groceries at Walmart for impoverished children
FAIRHOPE, Ala. (BIKER DAD) — An Alabama biker is offering a reward for info about who stole his Harley while he was buying groceries for impoverished kids.
Jason Gebhart, a member of the Punishers LEMC Coastal Alabama Chapter posted about it on Facebook. Jason and the Punishers were in the Walmart in Fairhope Alabama buying 7 grocery carts full of food for a program called Brenna’s Food for Backpacks. It’s a program that helps Baldwin County, AL students in need by providing them food and snacks they can take home with them on weekends. So many children rely on the food provided from the schools and go hungry at home over the weekends.

Biker’s Harley Stolen: No Good Deed..
Well, they say no good deed goes unpunished. That apparently even applies to the actual Punishers. Jason, who’s also a personal friend of mine, was inside the store filling those carts. That’s when someone swiped his Harley. You would think there would be great surveillance video of the theft, given it happened at Walmart. But Jason tells me management says the cameras have been out from Hurricane Sally. That was one year ago.
So he’s taking matters into his own hands and offering a reward. “This past Sunday afternoon my Harley was stolen out of the Fairhope Walmart parking lot sometime between 4-4:30 pm. It was found by the Fairhope Police about an hour later. I’m offering a cash reward to anyone that finds out who took it. I just want to sit down and have a little chat with them. Thanks.”
Biker’s Harley stolen: The good cause
But Jason and the Punishers would like you like you to concentrate on the good part of this story, the cause they were supporting. Brenna’s Backpacks . One of the young ladies behind the fundraiser is Brenna Schmierer, a student at J Larry Newton Elementary. After learning about the program and how it helps her fellow students she felt driven to make an impact. In 2019, she went door to door collecting items from neighbors, friends, and family —bringing in a total of 631 items. She continues to help today. You can click here to help support her effort.
