Police are looking for a suspect who they say stole a bicycle from a parking garage near the intersection of West Bannock and North 1st Streets in Boise. 

Video from the area shows a male subject entering the garage, cutting the cable locks securing the bike with a pair of bolt cutters, and then riding away.

The suspect was a white man wearing a dark jacket (with a hood and cream color sleeves), tan pants, and black Nike shoes with a white swoosh. 

At the time of the theft, he was also wearing a hat with sunglasses on the bill, gloves, and a black backpack. Prior to cutting the lock, the man covered his face, officials said.

The bicycle is a black Sole brand with two silver stripes on the frame. It has teal rims and bull-horn style handle bars with turquoise grip tape.
