Girl’s birthday ruined by brazen bike thief

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – It was a bummer of a birthday for an Albuquerque girl because of an all too common act.

The girl was eager to have a very exciting birthday and her first plan was to go ride her new bike, but when she walked outside she found her bicycle gone.

Her parents checked their surveillance video and found out exactly where it went.

A thief is seen just walking up in the middle of the night and taking the bike.

Heather Marcellus, the girl’s mother, says it’s just sad that thieves feel so comfortable.

“There’s been petty car thefts, people leaving their doors open but nothing that involved kids. Especially across the street from a school, that’s sad.”

Police say bicycles are a favorite for thieves. show hundreds of bike that have been stolen in the Albuquerque area. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
