Thieves may have rolled into Highland Park on two LimeBike rentals Nov. 22 and removed three bicycles from a garage left open during the day in the 3200 block of Beverly Drive. Managing the extra wheels may have been too much of a feat, because officers found one of the stolen bikes, a 1986 silver and blue Mirusmi, in an alley next to the rental bikes. A neighbor said the rental bikes had been in the alley since at least 12:30 p.m. The other stolen bikes, a yellow and blue 2014 Scott Graphite road bike, valued at $1,800, and a red Trek 800 mountain bike, valued at $1,000, were still missing.
SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: CLEANING EMERGENCY?

SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: SCALES OF INJUSTICE
The thief, who stole a package around 7:14 p.m. Nov. 3 from the front porch of home in the 4100 block of University Boulevard, may get a jump start on the oh-so-famous New Year’s resolution to lose weight. The stolen package had a nearly $65 bathroom scale in it.
Stolen before 7:18 a.m.: a green leather Brontibay wallet, $100 cash, and a Wilson tennis racket with purple grip from an unlocked 2012 Lexus RX5 parked in a driveway in the 4500 block of Southern Avenue. A child’s orange Mongoose bicycle parked on the porch also was stolen. The 39-year-old woman who reported the crime later told police she received a private message on Facebook, possibly from the thief, that said, “You lost your driver's license and credit cards.”
SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: GESUNDHEIT PROWLER
An allergy-suffering burglar may still be sneezing after leaving a leather pouch containing four Benadryl, a Zyrtec pill, and about $4 in cash in a black 2015 Land Rover broken into between 7:30 a.m. and 4:35 p.m. Monday in the 3700 block of Normandy Avenue.
SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: IT’S FUN TO BRIBE AT THE YMCA
Thirteen charges during the month of October to Domino’s Pizza in the 6000 block of Sherry Lane had a Highland Park mother on Oct. 16 reporting credit card fraud and harassment. The $301.24 worth of pizza, apparently, was purchased by a former co-worker of the cardholder’s daughter for both eating and as a means to bribe other Moody Family YMCA staff to cover his shift.
SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: UNLUCKY BUSINESS
A 61-year-old man with a Mabank, TX address on his driver’s license found himself at the Highland Park Police Department early Friday the 13th about a missing decal. Apparently the man had damaged the decal that allows him to operate a vehicle for hire at the DFW airport while washing his window, and authorities with the Ground Transportation office wouldn’t replace it unless he filed a lost property report. So he threw the decal away.
