Police are searching for a man who allegedly stole two bikes from Philadelphia Police Officers then placed them on the front of a SEPTA bus.

SEPTA officials say it happened around 8:30 p.m. in Center City. Two Philadelphia Police bike officers were on break and chained their bikes to a post near City Hall, according to an NBC10 source. The source told NBC10 a man cut the bikes from the chains and then placed them on the bike rack in front of a Route 16 SEPTA Bus on 17th and Walnut. Officials say the bus driver recognized they were police bikes and called SEPTA police as the suspect tried to board the bus. The bike thief then fled the scene, according to investigators.

The police bikes were recovered. Officials are still searching for the alleged bike thief however.
