GREAT FALLS — The Knicker Biker Bicycle Shop, located at 117 2nd Avenue North, has been broken into and burglarized.

The theft occurred Wednesday morning just before 5 a.m.

Surveillance video shows two individuals breaking a window and taking two bicycles. Although police showed up within minutes, the individuals managed to escape.

One bike is valued at $1,000, and the other bike is valued at just under $300. The store has now developed a way to lock all bikes.

Knicker Biker will be behind on services for a few days, the business wrote in a Facebook post.

“We are also an extra day or two on all of our service tickets,” the post said. “We thank all of you for your continued support.”
