Memorial Bikes Disappear in Scranton

SCRANTON, Pa. -- Bicycles keep disappearing then re-appearing at a memorial in Scranton.

Newswatch 16 told you last week about the bike taken from a memorial on South Main Avenue. The family of Michael Harmer placed the bike there in memory of the man who was hit and killed three years ago while riding his bike.

Someone anonymously donated the bike, but last week it was stolen.

Then, over the weekend, Harmer's family tells us someone put a replacement bike at the memorial.

That bike was also taken

Now, a second bike has been put at the site again, anonymously.

Scranton police say they are investigating.

    So the police won’t monitor my street (just a few blocks from here) for speeders, litter bugs and other infractions, yet they’ll waste manpower to investigate the removal of a distraction to drivers? Scranton’s finest focusing on the most important priorities.

    It is scranton after all. People will steal a used band-aid if you leave it unattended.
