JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Juneau police say they have no explanation for a stash of stolen bicycle parts found behind an apartment house in the Mendenhall Valley.
Lt. David Campbell tells the Juneau Empire (https://bit.ly/1wrlgzl) that most Juneau bike thefts are crimes of opportunity and people steal them to get around, not to strip them.
Michelle Norman says she loaned her bike to a friend of her daughter and it was stolen outside a store.
The girl’s stepfather received a tip about stolen bikes and found the Norman’s bike frame among tires and wheels piled up behind Coho Apartments.
Norman says it will probably be cheaper to buy a new bike than to add handlebars, front forks, wheels, gears, pedals, shifters and brakes to her recovered bike frame.
