Police: Ketchum Targeted By Bike Thieves
KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) - Police in the central Idaho resort area of Ketchum say a bike-stealing crime wave has hit with 44 bikes stolen so far this year with an average value between $2,000 and $3,000.
Ketchum Police Chief Steve Harkins tells the Idaho Mountain Express the thieves appear to be part of an organized group that knows how to spot expensive bikes.
He says the thieves are scouting for bikes, than carefully planning how to take them.
Harkins says most of the stolen bikes were unlocked and in plain view, while others were locked up out of view.
