Distinctive Schwinn Bike Stolen Last Night in Front of Winco; Keep a Lookout, Please
Last night, reports reader Rodney Brunlinger, he rode his bike to Winco to pick up one item. The store was pretty busy but he estimates he took less than five minutes. ‘When I came out at 8:40, my bike was gone and the cut cable was still on the bike rack,” he wrote.
“I immediately went in and told the [manager,” he said. “They told me they would review their security film footage only if I filed a police report, and only with the police.”
Brunlinger was frustrated. He is trying to file a report now but he knows a property crime won’t be at the top of the list for officers so he asked the Redheaded Blackbelt community to help.
Here’s a photo of the bike from a couple of years ago. The seat has changed but the bike frame and colors are still the same. It’s a 2005 (1955 Fifty year anniversary commemorative reissue) Schwinn Deluxe Seven. If you have any information, you can contact the Eureka Police Department at (707) 441-4060 or just email Brunlinger at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pass on the information on social media if you can.
