Hobbs Police officers are getting kudos for a good deed. 

Police say earlier this month, a man locked up his bike overnight at City Park, but a thief stole his front tire. 

The bike was his only way to get to work. 

Understanding his loss and frustration, officers pooled their money to buy him a brand new bike. 

When they went into Walmart to do it, the company said he could have one for free and pick any one he liked.
