A stolen bike belonging to National Football League (NFL) player JuJu Smith-Schuster has been found, according to KDKA-TV.
KDKA-TV on Wednesday reported that a man contacted them the night before saying he had purchased Smith-Schuster’s bike earlier in the day.
The man added that he turned the vehicle over to police in Mount Oliver, Pennsylvania, after learning it had been stolen.
A source confirmed to KDKA-TV that the man’s story is true, noting that Smith-Schuster would be reunited with the bike late Wednesday.
Mount Oliver Police Chief Matt Juzwick said someone had bought Smith-Schuster’s bike on the street for $200.
“The male said he saw the bike was on the news and [then knew] who the bike belonged to and wanted to turn it over to police,” he said.
Juzwick added that there are no charges expected against the man, who also described the person he bought the bike from.
Smith-Schuster on Tuesday tweeted that his bike “got stolen” before asking “why people got to be like that??”
“Man, somebody stole my bike,” he said in a video accompanying the tweet. “I ain’t got a bike no more.”
“I’m walking towards practice,” the rookie wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers added. “This is crazy.”
Fellow Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown on Tuesday offered two tickets to one of the team’s games to the person who returned Smith-Schuster’s bike to the franchise’s facilities.
The theft of Smith-Schuster’s vehicle inspired a parody Twitter account called @JujusBike and a hash tag #TeamFindJuJusBike.
Smith revealed on Twitter last month that he has neither a car nor a driver’s license, prompting him to ride a bicycle as his main mode of transportation.
