An unidentified flying object spotted in Hawaii caught enough people's attention to get the Federal Aviation Administration involved.

An investigation determined that earlier that same day around 4 a.m., two male suspects stole six e-bikes that had been locked up in front of the location.

The two men took the bikes and then fled.

Officials say the two got away with more than $10,000 worth of bikes.
