LETTER: Reader shares ‘Instant Karma Story’ about Burien bicycle thief
[EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is a Letter to the Editor, written by a Reader. It does not necessarily reflect the opinion of The B-Town Blog nor its staff:]
This happened at my house this morning (Thursday, Aug. 8), at 4th Ave SW & 106th…
Instant karma story: I’m interrupted when feeding my animals this morning when my dogs start barking like crazy… I walk out front to see a guy running off through our front gate with my husband’s bicycle (which was on our porch, but not locked up)… I scream at the thief, and chased him about 1/2 a block but he was riding away fast on the bike.
I ran home and called 911, they send a sheriff out quickly… sheriff finds bike at intersection nearby, apparently thief was struck by a car while fleeing the scene! Thief apparently ran away from the accident scene, but our bicycle is recovered and somewhat damaged, but repairable.
Hope that idiot learned his lesson…
