From Deep East Texas Crime Stoppers
LUFKIN, TEXAS (News Release) - Wearing a blood donor shirt while stealing a bike seems to make the person both a giver and a taker. Well, that's what you'll see in this week's Crime of the Week case.
Two men walked through the Sound Techs parking lot in Lufkin and saw a bicycle on the back of a Jeep. Initially, they walked away but a moment later one of them, the one wearing a blood donor's T-shirt, went back for the bike. He quickly disconnected it from the Jeep's carrier and rode southbound along South First Street to meet his friend. The racing-style Bianchi bike is painted black and turquoise and worth $7,000. but it's possible the men had no idea of its value and took it just because it wasn't bolted down.
Video of the theft is posted at facebook.com/DETCS. Even with the grainy quality of the video, anyone who knows the thieves will be able to identify them.
When the video was rewound to a few minutes prior to the theft, an 80s model blue Dodge truck with a camper shell is seen driving through the parking lot. It paused near the Jeep then drove away, and investigators want to know if they saw or know the suspects.
