Carmel Mayor sees something and says something
at around 3:30 a.m. March 18, a security guard at the Monterey Plaza Hotel saw someone smash a glass door at the Mad Dogs & Englishmen bike shop and called police, who soon arrived to discover “someone had broken in and stolen a high-end electric bicycle.”
Having seen their post and photos of the bright red e-bike, former Mayor Steve Dallas was in Seaside shopping for his mother the next morning when he saw a group of men standing around a bike that seemed out of place. “I was getting something for my mom at Smart & Final and came back to the car with some drinks for her, looked up and saw this red bicycle,” he said. He recognized it as the e-bike stolen from Blevins and Watson — who opened their first Peninsula bike shop on Mission Street in Carmel several years ago — so he called Seaside P.D.
