Cycling season is in full swing in Ottawa, which means the bicycle thieves are out too.
Bet this one didn’t think he’d get caught on camera!
An Ottawa man has posted the video below to YouTube. He’s hoping to catch the guy who stole his girlfriend’s bike and almost got away with his too. The video shows the thief calmly cutting through the bike lock and making off with both bikes. Passers-by don’t even seem to deter him!
Apparently, a lot of thieves are professional, and often come from other cities for the sole-purpose of stealing bikes off the street.
A good quality U-Lock is recommended. Cable locks are too easy to cut. Ottawa police also say to make sure you always report your bike stolen if it happens to you.
