Theft description: A stocky gentleman in a bright red shirt, black backpack and backwards baseball hat grabbed my bike from the front area of Cafe Luce on Park Ave. He rode back through the parking lot and then took off on Tyndall. The valet at the Sheraton said he stopped briefly to toss my helmet on the ground before he took off again. TPD was notified immediately after we saw him ride around the corner on the bike.

I keep my bikes in the house. And the house doors and windows are locked. Take that, bike thieves!
