JuJu Smith-Schuster’s Stolen Bike Found, En Route Back To Steelers Rookie

JuJu Smith-Schuster will be on the move again soon.

A man turned in the stolen bike that belongs to the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver to police Tuesday night, according to KDKA in Pittsburgh’s Lisa Washington.

The man told police he bought the Ghost bike on the street earlier Tuesday for $200 but called the police when he realized it belonged to Smith-Schuster.

A source told KDKA’s Rich Walsh that police will return the bike to Smith-Schuster on Wednesday.

The stolen bike saga emerged Tuesday when Smith-Schuster lamented on social media that he was walking to practice because someone had stolen it. Smith-Schuster doesn’t have a car or driver’s license, and the bike was his primary mode of transportation.

A social-media movement began under the hashtag #TeamFindJuJusBike, and Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown offered an enticing reward for the bike’s safe return.

Mount Oliver, Penn., police chief Matthew Juzwick told KDKA he doesn’t expect the man who returned Smith-Schuster’s bike will face charges. Instead, he should receive Brown’s reward and credit for doing the right thing.
