Good! Glad to hear that the cops are finally catching on the bike theft is an 'entry level crime', and will only lead to more crimes. After all, he's not just gonna stop at one bike. There would be more.

It's a good way to lure out people who would commit crimes given the chance. I'd like to see more of it.
