The Eagan Police Department is looking for the public’s help in locating the owner of a bicycle found near the city’s historic town hall after a serious fire at the building Sept. 8.

Eagan firefighters extinguished the blaze, and even though the building sustained considerable damage, a majority of it was saved.

Arson is suspected, and an investigation is continuing by the city’s police and fire departments. The bicycle may have been used by a suspect to flee the fire scene.

Police said the bike is a blue-and-white, 21-speed mountain bike, Make K2, Mode Zed 24, Serial Number G100200340. It had a black “Master” combination lock and cable wrapped beneath the handle bars. It may have been purchased from the Sports Authority and would have been missing before Sept. 8.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Eagan police at 651-675-5700 or
