Below, Elaine Ellis tries to find her bike on Twitter and SM. In yet another stolen bike story. Last week our columnist Seth Brigham had his bike stolen, but he scoured the neighborhood and found it. We posted his blog here too. But In this blog post Ellis does not say from where or when exactly the bike was stolen which will make it that much harder to find. Boulder Police say they retrieve less than 20% of stolen bikes.
My bike was stolen Saturday. And this is the picture of the person who stole it. Have you seen this bike thief?
This man felt entitled to my $500+ Trek Allant despite not paying for it. He felt so entitled to something he didn’t own that he felt he could rip the lock out of brick. He rifled through the unlocked bikes next to my bike and took mine. But Karma is a bitch and this story can have a happy ending. Because peopleacross from my courtyard took pictures of the person stealing my bike.
If you hate people who feel entitled to steal things that they don’t own, then you can help me get out the word about this bike thief. Not that I’m bitter. Bike thieves are one of the worst things about living in Boulder. And this is our chance to make sure we ruin his joy ride of thievery. And could you please keep an eye out for a man riding around on my olive green Trek Allant? It’s a popular model but I’d love to get it back.
Oh, and bike thief?
