Aviles and Perez. (Cook Co. Sheriff’s Office)

Three men have been arrested for allegedly stealing $20,000 worth of high-end bikes and parts from a lakefront cycle shop.

CBS2 reports that the arrests came after local bike cops who frequent the business while on patrol launched an investigation on their own time.

Mauricio Franco, 22; Jeremiah Aviles, 19; and Israel Perez, also 19, are charged with felony burglary in connection with the September 14 break-in at Lakeshore Bikes, which is located east of Lake Shore Drive near Addison.
Aviles and Perez are each jailed in lieu of $25,000 bond. CWB could not immediately locate bond information or a mugshot for Franco.
