Petit and grand theft. A thief stole bicycles, then used one of the bikes to steal paddle boards, according to the Sheriff’s Office. 

The suspect was at the county jail facing charges for the paddle board thefts when a Palm Coast man reported that his three SIKK bicycles had been stolen from an underground parking garage on Surfview Drive on May 6. 

The Sheriff’s Office deputy who reported to the scene recognized one of the bikes as one that had been used in the paddle board theft, according to the suspect’s arrest report.

Surveillance footage of the paddle board theft showed the suspect riding one of the stolen bikes and towing a stolen bike trailer with the paddle boards, according to the report. 

The three SIKK brand bicycles were at the suspect’s St. Augustine home when St. John’s County Sheriff’s Office deputies searched it. 

The suspect admitted to taking the bicycles, worth around $2,200 combined. He faces five grand theft charges and one petit theft charge.
