A local man's bike was stolen from the second-story balcony at his apartment in the 1500 block of W. Middlefield Road, according to police.
The 25-year-old Mountain View man said he had locked his bike up on his balcony in an apartment complex, said Sgt. Sean Thompson with the Mountain View Police Department. The man left his apartment around noon on Aug. 23. On Aug. 24 at about 9 a.m. he noticed it was gone.
Police do not believe anyone broke into the apartment, Thompson said. Instead, they believe someone managed to take the bike by scaling the outside wall of the balcony and cutting the lock, he said.
The bike was a GT brand mountain bike valued at about $500.
