CRIME: Two bikes stolen from Gregory Heights home Monday

BTB Reader Sig Ratkoviak wants everyone to be on the lookout for two stolen bikes, taken from his Gregory Heights home’s garage (near 12th SW and SW 160th) early Monday morning, May 13.

“This is second burglary I’ve experienced since moving to Burien in 2005 and I want to be as proactive as possible as this is a growing issue throughout our community,” Sig told The B-Town Blog.

Here are details on the theft:

“One was an adult’s Raleigh Cadent FT1, black with orange and white lettering, just like the top photo. It also had clip-in pedals and a water bottle holder. However, the front rim was bent and the tire was flat, so it wasn’t operable.

The other bike was a child’s bike, an Avigo “Rattlesnake.” It looks exactly like the lower photo, except without the training wheels.

Oddly, the only other missing items from our garage was a ratchet set and a spool of electrical wire, which aren’t nearly as important as the bicycles.”

Here are pics of similar bikes:

    Our son’s brand new bike was stolen mid-day on May 5th from our front yard. We had a bunch of friends over and we were all outside. Pretty bold! This is the 2nd time we have been burglarized since moving to Burien. I am really tired of people getting shot, robbed, vandalized and trespassed. I find it hard to believe that these “genius” criminals are able to stump the police over and over without getting caught, but if that’s the case, I guess we have to become even more vigilant in reporting everything may be construed as suspicious in order to force the criminals out of our town.

    If anyone sees the bike in this link, call the police.

    My sons new bmx bike was stolen near shorewood school. We posted flyers and offered a reward no questions asked. Got a call about four hours later. Bike was returned for $50. He never left it out of his sight again. Lesson learned. The cops will never find it.
