"A lot of would-be thieves are simply opportunists looking for something easy to steal, like an unlocked bike," said Lt. Alan Cavener, Boise Police Patrol Watch Commander. "Even if you're away from your bike for just a few minutes in an area you think is safe, invest in a quality lock and use it, every time. Unfortunately, not all stolen bikes are recovered so quickly."
What Happened: On July 4th, between 2:30 a.m. and 2:45 a.m., a mountain bike valued at approx $1,100 was stolen from in front of a home in the area of W. Camas St and So. Cole Rd.

The owner recognized the bike due to some damage and gear peculiar to this mountain bike.
The bike owner called Boise Police and told officers he had arranged to meet the internet seller at a nearby park. When the seller arrived with the bike, officers confronted the suspect and found evidence he had stolen the bike from a neighbors home. Officers had the owners positively identify the bike by opening the combination lock, and providing the sales records.
