Boulder Police Report Spike In High End Bike Thefts
BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Boulder police say thieves are targeting expensive bikes.
The majority are being stolen from racks on vehicles.
“The majority of the bikes were attached to vehicles either by a roof mount, a hitch rack or a rack mounted in truck beds,” Boulder police wrote in a prepared statement. “The thief or thieves used bolt cutters and/or wire cutters to defeat cable and u-locks to remove the bicycles from vehicles which were parked on downtown streets and parking garages, and from neighborhoods like Goss Grove and Frasier Meadows.”
The thefts started earlier this year. So far none of the bikes have been recovered.
