The footage then shows the thief being dropped off by a van, checking whether the riders inside the cafe were looking, then making off with another Wilier bike that had been left unlocked by the front door.
“As we rolled in around the white truck my Fly12 caught the license plate, then of course we caught the thief in the act,” Kevin said after the incident.
“The second half of the video came from my wife’s Fly12 and shows a better view tying the thief to the truck. The Sheriff was called and give this information.”
As for the thief, he has been tracked down by the local police force, with proceedings against him still ongoing.
