STOLEN CHOPPER

On Saturday, 7/9, people were invited to check out some locally-made funky bikes, but one guy thought it's be cool to take off on one and never come back.

LOOK OUT FOR THIS GUY and THIS CHOPPER

THE GUY
- Named Chris
- Relatively thin with short blonde hair
- Last seen wearing black spandex and a black Mary's (strip) Club jacket

THE BIKE
- Maroon and green chopper made from two adult frames
- VERY unique handle bars: wide and made from a bike rim

WHAT DO TO
1. Put a lock on that bike
2. Call the guy a pathetic loser
3. Please call me at 971/221.7228


Thank you thank you for any assistance you can offer.

Chris showed up at Rocco's tonight with the bike (and his spandex and Mary's Club jacket). He was confronted immediately and the bike was returned to its owner/creator. He tried to deny that he stole it, but eventually apologized.

Wish I had a picture to post, but I think most people will recognize him when they see him. The black spandex and Mary's jacket seem to be his uniform (he wore it again last night. spandex while on a chopper??!?!)

Thanks to everyone who pitched in on the cause.
