Man caught on camera stealing bike outside Boise business

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - A woman is trying to get her bike back after a man was caught on a security camera outside her office stealing her bike.

On the footage that was posted Thursday on YouTube it shows the man looking in the office building to make sure no one was looking. He then cuts the lock and takes the bike within a matter of seconds.

The bike's owner, Shannon, is hoping that someone will notice the person and call police. Boise PD said bike thefts are very common in this area and one of the only ways to really stop them is to use a U-lock.
