WATCH: Thief Steals Philly Police Officer’s Bicycle

The police officer’s bicycle, helmet and saddle bag were all recovered.

Philadelphia police have posted a video of a man stealing a Philadelphia police officer’s Trek bicycle. An officer was on the 1800 block of South Broad Street and left his bike outside. As you can see in the video above, the thief thinks about taking the bike for a while before finally deciding to scamper off with it.

The bike was later found on the 1300 block of Girard Avenue, and the helmet, saddle bag and all of its contents were recovered as well. The cops are still looking for him, though. The bicycle, helmet and bag were all clearly marked police, cops say.
