NARRAGANSETT - When Madison Cronin, 7, of Narragansett, lost her new bike, a gift from her grandparents to ride back and forth to school, her parents did what anyone would do â€“ they went to the Narragansett Police station to file a report for the missing gift. After being dispatched, Patrolman Jim Fitzgerald searched for the missing bike to no avail. However, he wasnâ€™t going to settle for a missing bike and a sad little girl, so he took matters into his own hands. The officer returned to the Cronin residence the very next day with a brand new bicycle for Madison.
