Police say citizen found the bike.
This Sacramento cop found Lance Armstrong’s time trial racing bicycle. Read details below the photo:
Last Saturday night, Lance Armstrong’s custom time trial bike was stolen along with two other bikes when thieves broke into a Team Astana truck parked in an alley. Initial reports said four bikes were stolen, but one of them (Jani’s) turned up in a hotel storage room Tuesday from what hotel staff said was from miscommunication between Astana and the hotel.
According to Sacramento police, a a local resident, who wishes to remain anonymous, drove to the police station and turned in a bicycle he believed was stolen from Lance Armstrong. The person is not a suspect and the police are not releasing details of how he came across the bike pending their investigation.
The bicycle is currently in the care of the Police Department and arrangements will be made to return the bicycle to the owner, hopefully in time for the Solvang time trial.
