It happened the afternoon of May 15. The suspect asked if he could do a test run on a champagne-colored Cannondale Jekyll Carbon 129 bike worth $6,374.73.

Despite the store's policy of taking an ID or driver's license before a customer test rides a bike, workers allowed it. But the suspect rode out the front door and never returned.

Police described him as clean-shaven Hispanic/Latin male who's about 6' tall.

Anyone who recognized the thief is urged to call crime analyst Diana Smith at or call her at 817.748.8915.
