PIERCE TRANSIT THIEVESWANTED IN PIERCE COUNTY —
Deputies need your help identifying this pair of thieves who scaled a fence to a storage area at the Pierce County Transit Headquarters on 96th St SW in Lakewood, then threw two bicycles back over the fence to steal.

One suspect rode off on the stolen bike. The other was confronted by a transit worker and drove off in a maroon Suzuki SUV.

“They’re getting into storage areas and we know when people do that they’re probably out making their living breaking into storage areas and taking other people’s stuff. We want to get them identified and, not only hold them accountable for this, but they’re suspects in other cases where storage sheds and other people’s property’s been taken,’ said Pierce County Det. Ed Troyer.
