He has been using a wheat paste to put up the posters around town, making them difficult to remove.

The suspect was seen riding a bike with reflective tape with panier bags on the back and a bike rack over the front tire. He was wearing a bright yellow helmet, a black biking jacket with reflective stripes and a backpack with a yellow safety vest wrapped around it.
