Gone in 160 seconds: Montreal bike thief filmed in action

It didn’t even take three minutes for a bike thief to make off with someone’s ride.

The Spotted: Montreal Facebook page, which published the video of the incident, indicated that it took place around 5 a.m. on Chapleau St. in the Plateau area.

The video shows a man removing parking signs from the top of a pole so that he can release a bike that had been locked to its base.

The incident appears to have been surreptitiously filmed through a window across the street.

While the man makes quick work of removing the bike, this is not the cleanest of heists. At one point, he falls off the garbage bin he’s standing atop while attempting to lift the bike.

That, however, will offer little consolation to the bike’s owner.
