Description of incident

Three teenagers illegally entered the garage, they were caught on security cameras, they stole three bikes (including this one) and left within 5 minutes. One of the thieves has been successfully identified as Joseph Browneagle of Little Earth community in Minneapolis. He is 16 and he's been in trouble with the police and is known as a bike thief. His whereabouts are unknown and we fear that's he's already sold/dumped the bike. I WILL OFFER A REWARD FOR INFORMATION THAT LEADS TO THE BIKE.
