Boulder police are investigating a second burglary at a local bicycle shop in less than a week and are asking for the public’s help to identify the individuals involved.

Just before 5 a.m. on Nov. 16, officers responded to Trek Bicycle, located at 2626 Baseline Rd., for a burglary alarm. Surveillance images showed one suspect using a pair of bolt cutters to break a rear garage door window to make entry. They stole a 2021 black and red Trek Fuel EX worth approximately $5,500.

Below are photos of indivuals police are trying to identify. 

Detectives are still investigating if this crime is related to the burglary that occurred at approximately 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 9, 2020 at Full Cycle, located at 1795 Pearl St. During that crime, two bicycles belonging to customers, each valued at $3,000, were stolen. One is a 2017 Felt black and yellow VR3 bike and the other is a 2018 Specialized Epic 29er black and red mountain bike.
