APB All My Stuff: A Plea From Dave Zabriske

Venturing outside the normal Cycling Action haunts in and around NW Oregon, this has just come in via Garmin-Slipstream pro David Zabriskie's Twitter updates:
# My house was broken into while at TOC. They took everything, a lot of bikes,cars, and you name it they got it. ...about 4 hours ago from web

# If anyone out there sees anything you think might be mine, let me know. Thanks...DZ ...about 4 hours ago from web
It's true. VeloNews.com reported that Zabriskie's Utah home was burglarized while the Olympian was at the Amgen Tour of California. Here's a partial list of stolen items:
• Giro D Italia Race Medal (approx. 6" circumference)
• Olympic Seiko watch
• Beijing Olympic ring (silver) with initials "DZ" engraved ($4,000)
• Olympic Time Trial Bike, plus 12 other bikes (combined value of $100,000)
• Cervelo (black/red) bike frame - team issued ($5000)
They took his Giro medal and Olympic ring? Bummer! On the other hand, it must be nice to have more than $100,000 worth of bikes in your garage. Let's hope he was insured.

Find a more complete list of DZ's stolen stuff at VeloNews.com and maybe you can help take a bite out of crime.
