WHAT HAPPENED…

Around 3AM on Thu Apr 17, 2014 a man with a hoodie and mask across most of his face used a full-sized sledgehammer to break out the glass of our front door here at Pine Mountain Sports. After he broke the glass he went to his vehicle and put the hammer away. He then came into the store and took a Santa Cruz Bronson bike and drug it through the hole in the door to put it in his vehicle. He ran back in and grabbed two Santa Cruz frames (detailed below) before leaving. Police arrived a moment after he was already gone. This album contains some of the details of the break in and missing items as well as images of our smash and grab thief and surveillance video of (his?) a white van used in another bike shop attempted burglary in our same neighborhood five days earlier.

Take a LOOK AT THIS WEBSITE LINK and let us know if you have any leads?

Thanks! We've only been smash and grabbed once before in recent years and we got help from the community in this same way. We got some solid tips and were able to arrest the thief and later recover the bike - which had made its way all the way to Portland. We hope to repeat that success. Finger crossed.

Sad news...you might post this to the 27.5 & 29er forums (and maybe the state sites around Oregon)also to get more people aware of this.

Your photo of the thief kind of looks like Bigfoot with Nikes...it is Oregon, :)
