I’ve been seeing a deluge of bike theft headlines in my media streams these past few weeks and I’m really getting tired of it.
Now I just got this alert from the PPB:
On Friday September 25, 2015, a 65-year-old woman called police to report that her two custom tricycles were stolen from the back porch of her Centennial Neighborhood home in Southeast Portland.
The victim told police that her tricycles were on the back porch of her home in the 2200 block of Southeast 145th Avenue and out of sight from the street. The suspect or suspects entered her locked backyard and stole both tricycles sometime during the night between Thursday September 24 and Friday September 25.
Both tricycles were custom made and allow the victim to transition from her wheelchair to the trike.
That is not cool. Please keep an eye out for these trikes. If you see them or have any information about the theft, please contact Detective Pandra Parks at 503-823-0414 or firstname.lastname@example.org and reference Portland Police Bureau Case #15-332712.
