Portland Police are on the lookout for a stolen e-bike they say is valued at nearly $10,000.
According to a statement issued by the PPB a few minutes ago, the “Stealth Bomber” pictured above is one of only three bicycles like it in the entire state of Oregon. Here’s more from the PPB:
The victim reported the bicycle stolen to Portland Police on November 29, 2013. The bike was cable-locked to an electrical box in the 100 block of Southeast 160th Avenue and was stolen sometime between 12:00 p.m. and 12:45 p.m. The back tire was also locked using a Kryptonite lock.
The Stealth Bomber electric bicycle is very unique and according to the owner, there are only three bicycles like this in the State of Oregon. The bicycle is described as black and the unique identifying number “387” affixed to a plate on the frame of the bicycle. Although the bicycle is electric, it has a pedal-assist.
If you have information about this theft, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call the PPB’s non-emergency line at (503) 823-3333 if you see it around town.
UPDATE, 12/3 at 3:45 pm: Police say they have recovered this bike: “The stolen Stealth Bomber electric bicycle has been returned to the owner after someone saw a reward flyer in the neighborhood where the bicycle was stolen from in Southeast Portland.”
