Mountain bike stolen from Brockton cop
By Maureen Boyle, Enterprise staff writer

BROCKTON — Officer Frank Czarnowski will be putting just one foot to the pedal these days.

That is because the Brockton police officer will patrol the city behind the wheel of a cruiser after the mountain bike he usually rides was stolen.

Czarnowski, a bike cop, left his bike outside a Petronelli Way gym Tuesday night to help another officer and when he returned, the $1,000 bike was not there, said Lt. John Crowley, chief of detectives.

"At first he thought someone was playing a joke on him," Crowley said.

But a quick call to the police station put the brakes on that idea.

Instead, a fellow officer swung by and gave the tireless Czarnowski a lift back to the station in a cruiser.

The Cannondale mountain bike is emblazoned with the words, "Brockton police." The officer's water bottle with his nickname on it, "Z-man," was also stolen.

Police are now trying to find the bike.

File that under the turning wheels of justice.

Yeah funny how when your $5000 downhill bike gets stolen, they are like "we don't have time to look for it and it most likely won't be found"...

I have to say that is a bold move on someones part to steal a cops bike. What it didn't say was if he had locked it up or not. I'm guessing not and maybe he'll learn from this :D

That's because the bike itself is an officer, just like the dog. I mean my bike has a personality, a soul. Why not a cop's bike? They have a kidnapped officer they are looking for! pEace!
