This theft occurred during a period in which there seem to have been an unusual number of break-ins to bike storage areas in the Pearl.
Police now have a suspect in the thefts. According to KGW, 28 year old Jason Charles Bush has been arrested on burglary charges. Bush is a suspect in three of the eleven reported thefts as well as another break-in.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with class and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
