Mountain bike theft continues in area

On Tuesday, July 9, Rochester Hills Police responded to a call about a stolen mountain bike from a Woodview Court apartment. The resident told officers that his bike was chained to a pole outside his apartment. When he saw the bike earlier in the morning, the bike had a flat tire. The owner went into his apartment to get tools to fix the tire and when he returned within ten minutes, the bike was gone. The cable lock used to chain up the bike was cut and lying on the ground when he returned. The man did not see anyone nearby in the parking lot and is not sure who would have taken his bike. He checked with apartment managers to be sure no groundskeepers took the bike, but they had not. Since the man did not have a serial number or model number, he made the report in case police come across his bike. The bike is mainly silver with black forks and sports a 98.7 radio sticker. If you have any information, please contact Rochester Hills Police at 248-537-3530.
