A Florida man, who was reportedly wanted in Washington, California, Nevada, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida, was arrested after attempting to pawn $40,000 worth of stolen mountain bikes in Boise, Idaho.
The owner of a local outdoor store that buys used bikes became suspicious after discovering a bike shop’s sticker on one of the bikes. After calling the bike store and confirming the bike had been stolen, the owner of the outdoor store called the police. After following the suspect for several blocks, the police performed a traffic stop, discovered the thief had a criminal record, and found 11 stolen bikes inside his storage van.
The thief then informed the offices he had a medical condition and was taken to a hospital. After being cleared by medical staff, the man attempted to escape but was detained by officers and is facing charges.
Bike thieves tend to steal in bulk and then sell across state lines. While it may be difficult to lock up your mountain bike near the trail, we urge you to take necessary precautions.

As such, it should come as no surprise that they are also planning on operating an inbounds snowcat called "Monster X" to access far-flung, though fully avalanche-controlled zones in Taynton Bowl, located in the northern, AKA upper-left portion of the mountain.
