Grand theft in the 3900 Block of Primavera where a $4,000.00 electric bicycle with brown saddlebags on the back was stolen.
As always, [C]omments there... amusing. (Doubt "Teenager or thereabouts, 5'8-5'9, blond hair short to medium, wearing baggy blue jeans, a white tee shirt with a logo on the front, and a USC cap..." knew that this theft was quite so "grand"...)
