Lethbridge Police are investigating the theft of a $16,000 road bike.

Officers say the garage door of a home along the 3100 block of Parkside Drive South was left open for about five minutes last Friday afternoon around 4pm.

It was during that time the custom-made Italian bike was stolen.

Nothing else was taken from the garage.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lethbridge Police or CrimeStoppers.
