A resident reports the theft sometime overnight July 22 / July 23 of a silver Marin hybrid bike from the side of the house at 360 Sumach St.
The bike was locked with a kryptonite lock to a steel bar by the rear tire, which had a custom key-locked axle. The thieves apparently had custom hex keys to remove the rear wheel axle pins. The owner calls the theft “fairly brazen as the small walkway beside the house has motion detector lighting and the bike was locked near the back of the house visible from both houses sharing the narrow walkway … Clearly a well scouted/cased, bike specific, specially equipped operation not afraid to work in well-lit tight passageways between houses.”
Police have been notified and the bicycle serial number is registered with police.
