Another bike thief busted via Craigslist

Hopefully this isn't a re-post.

Good to see people use resources and determination to not only recover their bike, but see the thief brought to justice. The story also mentions a LBS recognizing a crack in a frame? Wow.

That's the main reason I don't want to buy a bike from Craigslist or Ebay. I just have a feeling that a lot of those bikes are stolen.

I love it when a thief goes to jail.

:love:

Unfortunately, the thief will just say they bought the bike off someone else and be back out on the street the next day to steal again. I doubt if he will even be held for 24 hours.

Well...

Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll end up in a cell next to some 8' lump of scar tissue named "bubba" who will look at him and say "You're my little puppy now" for the duration of that 24 hours.
