Sioux Falls Bike Worth Several Thousand Dollars Recovered Thanks to Facebook
Sioux Falls Police Spokesman Sam Clemens says a bike valued at $2,700 was stolen from a bicycle dealer on Friday.
"They noticed one of their high end bicycles was missing. While checking their video system they found the bike was taken Friday night. They made a police report and also posted the information on Facebook page."
And that produced results!
"There was a man at Fawick Park in downtown Sioux Falls who saw this bike. He recognized it from the Facebook post. He then called the police and the owner. By the time the police got there, the owner had already tracked down the suspect near Sixth Street and Phillips Avenue."
Clemens says 38-year-old Luke Lloyd of Sioux Falls was arrested for grand theft and possession of stolen property.
