Camera Catches Thief Stealing Resident's Bicycle

The unidentified suspect pedaled away on a $400 Schwinn that was leaning against the victim's home, police said. A surveillance camera snapped several images of the theft.

A skate boarder rolled down a South Pasadena resident's driveway, hopped on a bicycle leaning against the wall and wheeled away on the stolen property, according to a crime bulletin from the South Pasadena Police Department. 

Detectives say the incident occurred about 10:45 a.m. on March 12 in the 2000 block of Stratford Avenue. A surveilance camera captured several images of the thief approaching then pedaling away on the silver and red Schwinn bicycle, which authorities valued at $400.00.

Oh, thats just so rude, at least the teenager that stole my sons bike a few years back, had the decency to leave his skateboard in exchange!

Do you who I am. I do. Your the idiot steal a bike. Turn your self or the curse of the fox tails will get. Today is the first curse fox tail. Good luck trying to get rid of this curse. The only way is to return the bike and turn your self into the police department.
