Colorado College is hoping someone will recognize the men they say were caught on surveillance stealing bikes from the campus.

Campus security says the crime happened on Feb. 20. Just after 4 a.m., an orange truck reportedly pulled into the 7-Eleven parking lot on 825 N. Nevada. Authorities say that after hanging out there, two men walked over to Slocum Hall on Cache La Poudre and started checking out all the bikes parked outside.

Surveillance shows the men slowly walk up to the bike racks, then stop at different bikes and look down at something. One of the men is seen on tape pulling something out of his jacket and then using it to start cutting. At the end of the video, one of the men is seen riding off on a bike, while the other man continues cutting. Authorities say he eventually took off on a bike as well.

The suspects were accompanied by a third man, who stayed at the truck during the theft. Authorities say he was the driver.

Colorado College has provided the following suspect descriptions:

Suspect 1: White male between the ages of 45-55, between 5-foot-9 and 6-foot-4, weighing between 200-266 pounds. He has thinning gray hair and wears dark-rimmed glasses. He was dressed in a black jacket, tan pants and black shoes.

Suspect 2: White male between the ages of 30-40, between 5-foot-9 and 6-foot-4, weighing between 180-220 pounds. He was wearing a black jacket, jeans and carried a black backpack.

Suspect 3 (driver): White male of unknown age, between 5-foot-8 and 6 feet tall.

The suspect vehicle is described as an orange flatbed truck with a large white toolbox on the back.

Both stolen bikes were mountain bikes. One was a green Scott brand, the other was blue, brand unknown.

Colorado College is hoping that someone will recognize the suspects from the photos and be able to help get them back to their rightful owners.
