Last night, between the hours of 12am-7am my group house on Kilbourne Place in Mt. Pleasant was robbed while 6 of us slept upstairs. It’s incredibly scary to think that strangers were in our home. Myself and the police believe multiple people were involved just based on the amount of stuff they took. They took 3 bicycles and a 60inch television. I know that they needed at least 2 people to carry the television out of the house. The television is a 60 inch Sharp Aquos flat screen HDTV.
Two bike descriptions below:
1. Black KHS frame fixed gear, pink back wheel, 1 front break, black components, black seat with gold bar.
2. It was a red trek bike. Drop down handlebars. Aluminum frame. Old school with shifters on the frame, not on the handle bars. It was about a 51″-52″. White seat. The handlebars were wrapped in white tape. On the right handlebar the wrapping was untangled a little bit leaving a small loop. A black and yellow attachment for a bike lock was attached to it under the frame to the seat near the back wheel. Wheels were skinny and black. Paint job was cut up a bit on the frame. Both brakes on top were covered in a black rubber that was torn.
3. Teal (blue green) Men’s Diamondback Cross Campus Hybrid Bike. It had straight handle bars.
The police took prints and DNA evidence from the appropriate surfaces. I was shocked that they did so at all but due to the nature of the crime, a B1 robbery while we were home, they are treating it as more severe.
I’m writing so that you can inform the community to stay vigilant of their own homes and in case folks run across any of the stolen merchandise.”
