DENVER - Denver Police are investigating a series of bike thefts that occurred in May. The two unrelated incidents were caught on camera.

On May 4, police say two men stole two bicycles from the RTD light rail station at 1901 East Buchtel. The pair were caught on an RTD camera riding a light rail train.

In a separate case, police say a man and a woman stole a $2,000 gray Murano bike from a secured parking garage at the Glass House, located at 1700 Bassett Street. The two thieves were caught on a security camera on May 24.

If you recognize any four of the individuals, you are asked to call Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867) or text to: 274637 (CRIMES) - then type DMCS in the subject line and enter your message.

Crime Stoppers collects information on unsolved crimes or individuals wanted by the police. Callers can remain anonymous. The tip line is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A correct tip can lead to a $2,000 reward.
