Early this morning around 4:00 am, the Portland Police Bureau responded to a burglary in progress at Athlete's Lounge, a triathlon and bike shop on Northwest Vaughn.
According to a PPB statement, 26-year-old Daniel Scott was trying to steal several high-end bikes. When officers arrived they surrounded the shop and ordered anyone inside the building to come outside. Scott was taken into custody without incident.
All the bikes were recovered and returned to the shop. Scott was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges on charges of Burglary in the Second Degree, Criminal Mischief in the First Degree, and four counts of Aggravated Theft in the First Degree. Bail is set at $90,000.
Athlete's Lounge opened in 2009 and just finished a major expansion back in August. They were recently named one of the top ten triathlon retailers in the U.S. by Triathlon America.
