Unique bike basket helps police link Lincoln man to JetSplash vandalisms, officer says

{{featured_button_text}}

The unique basket on a vandal suspect's bicycle helped Lincoln police tie a 32-year-old man to two case of vandalisms, a department spokeswoman said. 

On March 26 and April 1, video surveillance at the JetSplash at 56th Street and Pine Lake Road recorded a man riding in on a bicycle and breaking the access gates to the car wash, Officer Angela Sands said. 

Investigators posted images from the video to the Lincoln Crimestoppers site, and a tipster identified the man as the suspect, Sands said. 

When officers went to his home to speak with him Monday, they saw a bike with the same basket at his home, she said. 

Police identified the man as the person in the video and ticketed him on two counts of vandalism. 

The man didn't have any known affiliation with the car wash, police said.

Crimestoppers tips leading to arrests are eligible for rewards of up to $1,000.
