Long, detailed article about this same story, worth a read https://www.chicagomag.com/Chicago-M...r-Tom-Justice/
One of my former riding buddies acquired the bike that led to the thief's arrest; he didn't find out its history until after he bought it.

Yeah on a bike is best... Remember what everyone says about cyclists... "I didn't see him..." So I figure when you jump on the bike, from that point forward, there will be no witnesses, as apparently you become invisible.

I once saw a guy lift a bottle of liquor from a drug store on a bike (no hands). They had a display of bottles near the front and automatic doors at both ends. He was in and gone before anyone knew what happened. A few of us applauded.

With inflation out of control I may be forced to pull a stunt like that if I owned the store I wouldn’t have pressed charges if he was caught. I would ask how did you do it?
