Members of the Wounded Warrior Project need help in getting $37,000 in bicycle equipment back after it was stolen from a Delaware County hotel last week.

Nine Trek bicycles, parts and related equipment were stolen along with the U-Haul truck they were being stored inside from the parking lot of the Renaissance Philadelphia Airport Hotel at 500 Stevens Drive in Tinicum overnight Friday, police said.

The theft happened hours before the project's annual Soldier Ride in Philadelphia.

Tracy Farrell, the Wounded Warrior Project's vice president of health and wellness, said she was "disappointed, frustrated and just angry" by the theft.

"It was the equipment that we needed in case something happened. To either fix the bikes or help a warrior," she told NBC10 via Facetime.

The group will use equipment from other Wounded Warrior teams for a bike ride in Virginia Beach this weekend, Farrell said.

Tinicum Township Police said the stolen U-Haul is a 16 foot long Ford F-450 with Arizona license plate AD-21774. Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt. James Simpkins, Jr. at 610-521-3830.
