It’s certainly been an odd week in the dark netherworld of bike theftdom, and I have two stories to report with semi-happy endings. In the first one, the bike thieves were caught — but the bike is still MIA. In the second story, the bike was recovered but the thief is still at large.
My friend MC helped facilitate the arrest of this alleged bike thief today. Here’s the story — feel free to share it as we could use your help tracking down the owners of two missing bikes and furnishing proof that this individual was involved.
A source at the SFPD (who’d like to remain anonymous) forwarded me the following photos of a serial bike thief.
Just as we were making our way through the Mission on 23rd and Harrison tonight, we encountered a thief attempting to steal a bicycle.
If we are all forced to ride beaters, then the bike terrorists have won.
