Bikes that go for $4000 and $5100 a pop have been stolen from garages in the city that were left open.  Police succeeded in recovering the bikes.

A thief appears to have scoped out a number of locations that had high end bikes in the garage and then made a trip back to snatch them, load them into his vehicle and drive off.

Didn’t work out as planned.
