A recent stolen bike listing describes a brazen thief clipping bike locks in broad daylight on NE Broadway Blvd:
“My bike was stolen a few hours ago outside Costello’s Travel Cafe on NE Broadway between 22nd and 23rd. It was 7:00pm, bright out, and busy on the street. A woman who was parking right beside the thief challenged him when she saw his bolt cutter, and he gave her the finger and rode away. He cut through a wire rope lock quickly. He was white with brown hair, a mustache, a lump on his neck like a cyst, jeans, a dark t-shirt and a dark baseball hat. He carried a green bag slung across his chest. About 35 years old, 5′10″ and about 175 pounds. Very brazen and very quick with his work.”
Keep your eyes peeled for this guy…or better yet, trash your cable lock and invest in something he can’t cut through.
