Man Finds His Stolen Bike on Facebook

At least a dozen motorcycles have been stolen in the metro in the past few weeks and owners say they’re fed up.

Someone stole two from Struthers Brothers. Another two were stolen from Fenders Cycle on the city’s south side. That theft was caught on security camera. Rob Parker of Des Moines had two stolen from his garage. He says police did little to help, so he turned to Facebook where he found one of his bikes for sale.

“Both bikes have been recovered. One of them the police recovered, which cost me $116 to get out of impound. The other bike, the person who had it, gave me directions. It was down at Easter Lake on a trail. Both bikes had had parts stripped off them,” Parker said. “People are, I guess, gonna have to take the law into their own hands. As bad as that sounds.”

The person who had Parker’s bike was not arrested. He tells us he was selling it for a friend who stole it. A spokesman for the Des Moines Police Department says detectives never returned his call for a comment.
