Just got word that a bike was stolen off a Metro bus on Hollywood Boulevard Wednesday night.
I’ll let the bike’s owner, popular LA cyclist Johnny Lam, describe what happened.
It was stolen off the 222 Metro bus line heading Eastbound on Hollywood Blvd at 8:40PM. The theif lifted it off at the bus stop on Ivar Ave and Hollywood Blvd and rode southbound on Ivar Ave. By the time I saw it happen, I could only see that he was wearing a backwards baseball cap and was pedaling away with my bike around the corner. The bus driver was honking and people on the bus was yelling, “the bike”.
It was a 2009 Lemond Reno 51cm. They can email me at [email protected] or contact Detective Savedra at (323) 563-5000 at the LA Sheriffs referencing case #913-06822-6874-386.
Keep your eyes open, especially if you see a similar bike listed on Craigslist or some other online forum, or see a bike on the street that matches the description.
Let’s get this one back.
And catch the son of a bitch who stole it while we’re at it.
