$2,000 Electric Bike Stolen 10 Minutes After Being Locked Up

$2,000 Electric Bike Stolen 10 Minutes After Being Locked Up

If you live in a big city or town, chances are some of the food deliveries you have received were brought to you on an e-bike. But the pricey electric bikes have also become a hot target for thieves. To see how bad the problem is, Inside Edition rented a sleek, $2,000 electronic bike from NYC Adventure eBike Tours. We hid two GPS devices in the bike, and Inside Edition Chief Investigative Correspondent Lisa Guerrero locked it to a stop sign post. Just 10 minutes later, a man strolled up, ripped off the cable lock and rode away.

    That cable wasn’t any good. One good yank and he broke it in two.

    So the lesson is don’t spend 2k on a bike

    And if you steel one inspect it for a gps device.

    How did the thief rip off the bike lock with his bare hands

    Best bang for the buck.

    This is futile. Those Ebike thieves will be out and about after being apprehended and Hochul and company will just brush it off like it never happened. Lol

    Hey Dir of workers you voted for the leadership in NY

    More baits like this should be made. But with the assistance of a camera-drone. No excuse for the thief ever. They need money, and so do others.

    If the penalty was “life changing”it wouldn’t happen as often

  9. Ductape310 on December 29, 2022 at 1:44 am

  10. ShoKING on December 29, 2022 at 1:44 am

    damn usa is that messed up

  11. Kili Graphics on December 29, 2022 at 1:45 am

    This "lock" was literally ripped of. If you own a bike, get yourself at least two high quality locks. At least 10% of the bikes value

  12. CityPlanner on December 29, 2022 at 1:45 am

    $2000 e bike and putting a $10 lock on it…..

  13. Uriel Septim on December 29, 2022 at 1:45 am

    Can’t catch up? He just catched him.

  14. Jaykay Elem on December 29, 2022 at 1:46 am

    I’ve been to many 3rd world countries. I guarantee you, NYC is the worse than them

  15. Jay Hohonson on December 29, 2022 at 1:48 am

    Funny how much fat people pay to not have to use feet lol

  16. AA shark on December 29, 2022 at 1:48 am

    That’s what happens when you use a $5 lock

  17. Sir Galaga on December 29, 2022 at 1:49 am

    Do you want to visit Guatemala, Mexico, Rep Dominic, Venezuela, Colombia, Salvador, peru?
    Then come to New York City!

    Oh a black thief

  20. Bur Undi on December 29, 2022 at 1:51 am

    great lock they put on it…

  21. Albert Calderon on December 29, 2022 at 1:57 am

    Hammurabi’s code dictates that thieves have their hands chopped off. Slippery slope. Can’t do that these days unfortunately, but something needs to give. This is ridiculous.

  22. panbrood on December 29, 2022 at 1:57 am

    With a lock like that you deserve it.

  23. VoidNeck on December 29, 2022 at 1:58 am

    Some pple really be slow cause I’d activate the jets to catch up to someone taking my bike

  24. tychikil on December 29, 2022 at 1:58 am

    New York should start harsher punishment for criminals

  25. RageBoi on December 29, 2022 at 1:59 am

    My scooter was stolen yesterday at an arcade…

  26. Tom J on December 29, 2022 at 2:01 am

    I would rather have the front wheel lock up by remote.

  27. Soniel Elica on December 29, 2022 at 2:02 am

    why dont they bring cops to catch these type of people right away lol

  28. Dan on December 29, 2022 at 2:05 am

    How did he rip off the lock so easily, did you use a lock from the dollar store?

  29. Gilad Baruchian on December 29, 2022 at 2:05 am

    lol 2000$ bike with a 2$ lock, what did you expect 🙂

  30. bengalslash on December 29, 2022 at 2:05 am

    "he gives chase but can’t catch up" – literally catches the guy… And the bike thief was def an actor. Also who locks a bike with a chinzy lock like taht

  31. Albert Har on December 29, 2022 at 2:06 am

    Need to start cutting their fingers and hands off , after 2-3 public executions , all these stealing will stop.

  32. Jason. Foo on December 29, 2022 at 2:09 am

    I had a bike stolen once and now I even have three locks now in case my mini green one and my purple mountain one get swiped

  33. Ken Morgan on December 29, 2022 at 2:10 am

    I’ve had every bike I ever owned stolen. From home, work, the mall, and the movie theater.

  34. TK C. on December 29, 2022 at 2:12 am

    Vote blue if you want criminals to have more rights than you as a law abiding citizen trying to earn an honest living.

  35. Oblivion Light on December 29, 2022 at 2:12 am

    Wow. What kind of chain did she lock that up with?

  36. Sienna&Cheyenne on December 29, 2022 at 2:14 am

    That’s him in the right corner at 2:15

  37. Gary Johnson on December 29, 2022 at 2:14 am

    Don’t lock up with a zip tie!

  38. Anderson Sudário on December 29, 2022 at 2:16 am

    Opportunity for those YouTubers making pranks using stolen bicycles mixed with eggs electrocution

  39. Anoetic OddZero on December 29, 2022 at 2:18 am

    Ah NY …" I don’t know how the bike got there". Same about " I don’t know how that person got murdered and raped" …yep full of rats

  40. Merrick Roy on December 29, 2022 at 2:18 am

    I own that exact orange Sondors bike. It is a sweet cruiser! Sondors is the most reliable ebike brand on the market. (A close second is Ariel Rider)

  41. T W on December 29, 2022 at 2:19 am

    Lisa you need to wear helmet.

  42. Scruffy on December 29, 2022 at 2:20 am

  43. vmaxfodder on December 29, 2022 at 2:21 am

    Crime is perpetuated by ,and facilitated by Democrats!

    The company who is making Ebikes they should add some wireless kill switch
    So that the owner can shut down all the components that uses to run the ebiks
    And then the ebikes should have some anti theft system
    Like its going to brake the tires to prevent it from getting steal

  45. Sa Ra on December 29, 2022 at 2:24 am

    This does not happen in Texas.

  46. john deere on December 29, 2022 at 2:26 am

    Sadly this man did not go to school making him not getting educated and poor, when this happens crimes will happen alot often because they have a decision.
