    ELBERT COUNTY - The Elbert County Sheriff's Office has arrested two people involved in an alleged bike-theft ring.

    The deputies discovered the suspects because of a routine traffic stop in Kiowa. They found wads of cash on the driver during the traffic stop and detained the two for questioning.

    Investigators found out the suspects had 30 allegedly-stolen bikes in a storage unit. The bikes were stolen from Denver, Golden and Elbert counties around the areas of University of Colorado, Denver University, Washington Park and Leadville, according to authorities.

    Investigators tracked down the storage unit and found 30 bikes inside. Some of the bikes are worth more than $2,000 each.

    Authorities tracked down four owners of the stolen bikes. They are asking the public to help identify the 26 other bikes.

    Investigators are asking victims of recent bike theft to call them. They also recommend that bike owners who are lucky enough to not be affected by this bike-theft ring to do the following:

    Write down the serial number of your bike
    Write down a description of your bike
    Take a photo of your bike.
    Police are not releasing the names of the suspects at this point.

    Just because the word "justice" appears in the term justice system, don't let that confuse you. the two have little in common.
