BOLO Alert — Two bikes stolen from Culver City

I’ve been forwarded news this morning that two bikes were stolen from a Culver City woman yesterday. So be on the lookout when you’re on the street — or especially on Craiglist, eBay or other reseller marketplaces.

If you see them, contact the Culver City police at 310/837-1221, or your own local police department. Then email the owner ay virginia dot solomon at gmail dot com.

; you can find my email address on the About page.

Thanks to Eric Bruins for the heads-up; as he notes, there’s a special place in hell for bike thieves.

    Where were these bicycles stolen from? I want to make sure ours are more vigorously locked down when we park in that place.

      She didn’t say where the bikes were taken from, but I would assume they were stolen from her home since she lost both of them.

    Ugh, a Ritte got stolen? Methinks the thief knows their quality bikes.

    My Rainer Giant was stolen this past August from our apartment complex. We have a gated entry. Someone broke the gate and stripped the bike. I ulocked and cabled it. They had been working on it for a while.. I realized that after it was stolen, bc the gate was broken a few days prior and the handle bars flipped on me when I slammed the breaks the day before it was stolen. The chain was off every morning as well. These ppl know quality bikes. Mine was over $1000 with all the extras.
