ah, but now the bike has been returned :

The return of JuJu Smith-Schuster’s bike is breaking news in Pittsburgh
As far as crimes go, the theft of Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster’s bike ranks pretty far down the list. But it’s Pittsburgh, and it’s the Steelers, and thus we got this “breaking news” out of Western Pennsylvania on Wednesday morning:

To begin at the beginning, Smith-Schuster posted a video Tuesday on Twitter in which he expressed dismay that someone had stolen his bike:

But now the happy ending: Rick Dayton of KDKA in Pittsburgh says the TV station was contacted by a man saying he bought the bike before learning it was stolen. The man turned it over to police. The end.

Here it is! The bike belonging to @TeamJuJu is at the Mt. Oliver Police Dept. after someone turned it in last night. #KDKA @steelers pic.twitter.com/us6rnF7vBb

The crime might have been pedestrian, but the recovery of Smith-Schuster’s ride is something of a statistical oddity, considering that less than 5 percent of the bicycles that are stolen in this country are returned to their owners. The lesson here: Be a famous football player and have one of your teammates offer tickets in exchange for its return, and good things will happen.
