Amy Jordanson, a student living on campus at Bethel University, believes that her bike has been stolen multiple times. 

“I ride my bike to class and then when I come back hours later, it’s gone!” complained Jordanson. The thievery has taken place for a week straight, but Jordanson’s bike somehow always returns to the bike rack in front of her residence hall. 

“It just reappears. I’m not sure what’s going on,” said Jordanson. 

Jordanson also claims that her bike is not even worth being stolen.

“I don’t know why anyone would want to steal it. It is a piece of junk. Literally. I pulled it out of a dumpster last year.” 

Perhaps that is why the bike has been consistently returned. 

However, fellow bikers at Bethel University have cracked the case of Jordanson’s stolen bike. 

“We realized that Amy would park her bike at one bike rack and then come looking for it at another,” said Mark Shoreburg, a biker. “So it’s not that her bike is getting stolen, but she’s just forgetting where she parked it.” 

“We started returning the bike to her,” commented Kayla Archfield, another biker. “We just couldn’t stand to see her so upset.” 

Jordanson has not yet come to the realization that no one is stealing her bike, so she continues to search for the culprit, well, until she reads this article at least.
