(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Thunder Bay and all cities across Canada are no stranger to experiencing petty theft, today was no different.
A REAL Concerned Citizen, who prefers to remain anonymous, witnessed what he believes was a bike being stolen from the Wal-Mart at 777 Memorial Ave. He took the two photos in this article.
The person was hiding their face from the camera and aggressively fidgeting with the bike lock.
Bike thefts are common place among thieves and broke substance abusers to obtain a quick mode of transportation and, if valuable enough, something they can trade in for their next hit or cash to get a drink.
Bike thefts are so common across the city that the majority of people, myself included, have become completely numb to them. I have lost two bikes in Thunder Bay to theft. How many, if any have you lost?
If this is your bike, leave a comment or message me and let’s start the process of getting it back to you.
Before anyone says anything stupid like “why didn’t the guy stop the theft”, because getting poked with a dirty needle filled with disease isn’t worth saving someone’s couple hundred dollar bike. Take a picture and steer clear of trying to be Mr Incredible.
