Video: Bicycle-riding thief targets unlocked cars in St. Petersburg

A St. Petersburg homeowner in Snell Isle captured this surveillance video of someone on a bicycle who stopped to break into his car.

The video was distributed in an email along with a warning to Shore Acres and Snell Isle residents to keep their cars locked. There have been numerous car break-ins in both areas recently. The suspect is described as a white male between 30 and 40 who rides a bicycle in the area between 1 and 5 a.m.

If the suspect is seen, police ask residents to call the non-emergency number at (727) 893-7780.

Meanwhile, the email also noted that two teenagers, ages 14 and 16, were caught by the St. Petersburg police after a night of car break-ins.
