    Why would someone steal this?

    There's a place where seasonal workers park bikes bought for use over the summer. The bikes are often abandoned after they leave.

    Whenever one of the tires goes flat, someone cuts the inner tube off the rim with scissors (indicating a bit of pre planning) and steals it. Sometimes they come back and cut the little bit left after they stole the main part of the tube.

    What the heck is going on?

    ...so they cut the tube on both sides of the valve and leave that part behind? Weird.

    That's all I could think of, but then a piece that was left, about 3" by 2" disappeared as well.

    This has gone on for over a year, about 5 tubes in all.
