Pleasanton police on Friday released photos of a man who allegedly stole a bicycle worth $8,400 from a shop in town last month.
On June 19, the unidentified man entered Mike's Bikes on the 6700 block of Bernal Avenue and asked an employee if he could ride a 2018 Santa Cruz Nomad bicycle outside, police said in a Facebook post.
The employee agreed. Once outside, the man rode off on the bike and never returned, according to police.
The suspect is described as a Middle Eastern man about 6 feet tall and in his late 20's. The bicycle is blue with tan accents and the last four numbers of the serial number are 0282.
Anyone who can identify the suspect or find the missing bicycle is asked to contact the Pleasanton Police Department at 931-5100.
