Just a week after someone stole two bikes from Mayor Adrian Fenty's Washington, D.C., home, an ex-president's daughter has police looking for her wheels.

Two mountain bikes were stolen from the Baltimore rowhome of Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of former President George W. Bush.

Police responded to an alarm Friday afternoon at the Hager residence near Federal Hill, the Baltimore Sun reported. They at first found no sign of a break-in. Jenna Hager and her husband, who were out of town at the time, were alerted of the alarm by the alarm company.

The Hagers asked a neighbor to check on their bikes, and sure enough, they were gone. Police returned and found some small pry marks on the rear garage door that was locked but not dead bolted.

And while the intruder didn’t take anything else from the home, it turns out they didn’t get away with just a pair of Huffys. Jenna Hager’s husband's bike was a black and red Trek worth about $2,500. Jenna’s bike was a blue Trek worth about $1,000.

Police, however, do not think that the Hager home was targeted specifically.

“There is no intelligence to suggest that this residence was targeted because of who owns it and who lives there,” city police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the Baltimore Sun. “It looks like a very minor residential burglary.”

The Hagers had Secret Service protection when they first moved into the home in 2008. They no longer have those agents protecting them or their home.

Fenty, on the other hand, had his security detail at his home when his bikes were stolen.
