A elderly neighbor of mine has a small collection of bikes / frames in a pile in her backyard that were put there by her grandson. He has been in and out of jail, and the bikes are pretty much random (MB frame, mixte frame, cheap NEXT suspension-type, etc.). I would be very surprised if these bikes were not stolen, although I have no proof of that.
The police aren't interested (or at least haven't shown any interest when I called).
She wants these bikes out of her yard, and is considering just having hem taken to the dump. I'm torn between not wanting anything to do with stolen bikes and wanting to rescue at least one of them. Assuming I can't get the police to look into this, does anyone have any ideas besides just letting them get dumped?
