Remember to Never Lock Your Bike Only By The Front Wheel

Dear PoPville,

I was going walking past the Columbia Heights IHOP last night with a friend and saw a guy stealing a sea green Bianchi bike. Only the front wheel was locked, so he removed it via quickrelease. He had brought his own wheel to replace it, and put it on in the parking garage next to the IHOP. But since the new wheel didn’t fit, he had to carry the bike down the street. We both took a photo, called the cops, and followed the guy for about 15 minutes. Unfortunately he disappeared but we managed to show the photo and give a description to the cops (who came after about 20 minutes.) The guy was quite short, about 5 feet tall and a few inches, black, bearded, and stocky. Just wanted to put this out in case anyone has any other information. Sorry for the owner of the bike!
