Poetic Justice

If only this would happen to all bike thieves.


Bike Theft Leads To Other Arrests

A bike theft in Sioux Falls took a strange turn of events for police officers last night.

The victim called police, and met them at the Hy-Vee on East 10th Street where the suspect was inside. Police began questioning the suspect's roommate in the squad car, when the suspect walked out of the store. Officers say he took off running with beer cans he had just shoplifted spilling out of his coat pockets.

As soon as officers caught him, they heard a strange noise from the squad car. There, they say that roommate had just destroyed the officer's cell phone.

The suspected bike thief, 18-year-old Kyle Klemm was arrested for charges of theft, fleeing, resisting arrest, and underage consumption. His roommate, 19-year-old Daniel Heddens, was arrested for intentional damage to property, underage consumption, and outstanding warrants.

And after all that trouble, police say the bike theft victim did not want to press charges on the men for stealing his bike.

Holy Crap! That's the grocery I go to. I've even have left my bike on the rack unlocked there while shopping.

Thanks for the scoop.

Oh, and I referenced you and your 10,000 mile goal in my $50 per mile bike post.
