same crew who stole a bike tire earlier this month and were caught by the cops have returned to their thieving ways. A reader had an experience tonight that sounds similar to one reported a couple weeks ago. Be alert if you park your bike in Uptown. The previous post has some good tips in the comments. Here's tonight's story:
"I just had a scary and fortunate situation at Buena and Sheridan with two bike thieves that have been seen in the area before. My bike was parked on the street for a few hours at Sheridan and Buena and when I left my house I saw two Hispanic guys walking with a really nice bike wheel in their hand. My wheel.
I grabbed it back out of their hands and they ran off. I called the police but the guys were gone, heading north on Broadway towards Montrose.
Be on the lookout for these two guys:
2 Hispanic men, one small, the other very large. The large guy has a shaved head and thin goatee. He has broad shoulders and was wearing a brown zip-up hooded sweatshirt and shorts. The smaller guy had short greasy hair, a white shirt with stripes and pants. Be on the lookout for this bastard odd couple."
