More than 60 bicycles believed to be stolen were recovered last week by Marysville police and investigators need the public’s help reuniting the bikes with their owners.
“The bicycles range from your average BMX, mountain, and touring bikes to several high-end road bikes,” Marysville Lt. Mike Thomas said.
The night of April 3, Marysville police were looking into possible criminal activity in the 5200 block of 81st Place Northeast. Investigators were not more specific.
“While officers were making contact with the occupants of this residence they observed what was later identified as two stolen motorcycles,” Commander Robb Lamoureux said in a statement. “Also during the contact an officer observed a bicycle matching the description of a unique and expensive Olympic-style racing bicycle that had been stolen a couple of weeks prior in residential burglary in Marysville. The bike was worth over $7,000.”
After officers served a search warrant, police said they found two motorcycles, the bike and an additional 61 bicycles along with a stolen 12-foot Coleman camping trailer. Several firearms were removed from the residence, including one that had been previously reported stolen, Lamoureux said.
One man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for felony possession of stolen property.
“While the investigation is ongoing and we continue to look into the firearms and narcotics that were located in the search warrant, we are hoping to return as many of the stolen bicycles as possible to their rightful owners,” Lt. Mark Thomas said in a statement.
