BROOKINGS – A Brookings thief pedaled away – perhaps with an accomplice – from the Brookings Public Library Monday evening, towing a bike trailer.
That’s what the owner reported to police: Between 7 and 8 p.m. someone rode off with a yellow Trek 820 bicycle with an attached Trek tandem trailer that makes it a “bicycle built for two.” The two-person rig is valued at $500.
The bike was not locked when it was taken from the library, which is located at 515 Third St.
Anyone with any information about the theft is asked to contact the Brookings Police Department at 692-2113, or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously by visiting www.brookingsareacrimestoppers.com online or by calling 692-STOP (7867).For the complete article see the 07-18-2013 issue.
