High-end bicycle, $8,000, might have been taken for joyride
July 18, 2014
A high-end bicycle was found in Old Town after it had been reported stolen in Summit County, the Park City Police Department said.
The Police Department received a report at 5:17 p.m. on July 8 from the owner of the bicycle. Rick Ryan, a police captain, said an anonymous person saw the bicycle outside a residence on the 400 block of Woodside Avenue. Ryan said the victim posted fliers after the bicycle disappeared. The anonymous person saw a flier and contacted the owner after seeing the bicycle, Ryan said. The bicycle was left outside the door of a condominium, Ryan said.
The bicycle owner went to the address, saw the bicycle and contacted the Police Department, Ryan said. The police responded and talked to the bicycle owner and two of the person’s friends. The friends verified that the bicycle belonged to the owner, Ryan said. The bicycle was recovered.
It is a Santa Cruz Bicycles model. Ryan said it has an estimated value of $8,000.
"A joyride on a bicycle, perhaps," Ryan said about the circumstances.
The Police Department turned the case over to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office since the bicycle was stolen in the county rather than inside the Park City limits.
