Man caught on camera stealing Philly cop’s police bicycle

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Investigators are looking for a bandit who was captured on video taking off with a Philadelphia Police bicycle.

The theft took place Friday in the lobby of a high-rise building in downtown Philadelphia while officers were taking a police report.

Police say officers were on the fourth floor responding to a call and left the bicycle in the lobby, where a man dressed in a tan jacket and gray hooded sweatshirt took off with it.

Surveillance video shows the man exiting an elevator and looking at the black Trek bicycle as he walks by. Soon after, he returns, looks around and wheels it outside.

The bicycle is equipped with a CPR mask and pepper spray in a rear cargo bag and has “Police” printed in white on its frame.
