Stolen Bike Recovered, Alleged Thief Arrested

Our buddy's Milwaukee Bruiser stolen on Friday, October 29 has been recovered!

The perpetrator allegedly walked in to our mutual friends' bike shop to try to sell the bike for $150. The bike shop employee (who recognized the bike) called the owner and then the cops. The cops showed up and arrested the dude! Bike justice! Never underestimate the San Diego Bike Community.

  2. Thanks for the info, Briand. With bike theft rising in virtually every city (as ridership also rises), we'll need new tools to prevent bike theft but also to recover bikes that have been stolen.

    I can't get the link you shared to work. I googled around and found this one, though: http://www.bikerevolution.org/stolen-bike-recovery.html

    I assume this is what you were referring to. Correct?
