The owner of a bike stolen Monday from the Racine County Workforce Development Center is asking for helping getting it back.
The person who owns the bicycle contacted our friends at Racine Uncovered after discovering their bike was gone and an imposter left in its place, saying they usually park the bike in the garage without any issue.
Today, though, painters left the door to the garage open to make getting in and out of the building easier and that’s when the owner believes the bike was taken. The theft is believed to have occurred between 7:45 a.m. and noon.
“Today between the time I arrived (7:45) and my lunch (12:00) someone stole my bike out of the garage and left their piece of garbage sitting off to the side,” the person wrote to RU. “I was hoping that you could post the pictures and see if I can get any information on the individual that took it.”
The stolen bike is a men’s Forest Green and Silver Trek 820 worth over $300, and the bicycle left behind is a gray, women’s Murray with a black fender over the back wheel and front wheel that appears to be bent.
If anyone has information about this incident, they can call Crime Stoppers at 636-9330 and leave an anonymous tip.
