Danville Police are searching for information about a residential burglary during which a thief stole a valuable bicycle in a neighborhood northwest of downtown early Sunday morning.
An unidentified man parked in the victim's driveway and broke in through the garage of the home in the 300 block of Harper Lane just before 4:20 a.m., according to Danville Police Det. Sgt. Jason Haynes.
The culprit stole the resident's white Pinarello Dogma bicycle but may have gotten more than he bargained for when his face was captured on video during the burglary, according to police. The resident provided the video evidence to detectives, who are currently investigating the case, Haynes said.
The thief is described as a man in his 30s or 40s. He is seen in the video wearing a black jacket, jeans, black Vans-type shoes with white laces and a headlamp.
Anyone with information about the incident can contact Det. Anthony Perry at 314-3710 or Haynes at 314-3703 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
