Some nice stuff there, especially the Fuso in the first pic. Sure hope some rightful owners get reunited with their stuff.

Oh by the way, I wasn't very clear about this incident. These bikes were not stolen from BART. They were just stolen. One victim found his bike for sale and he agreed to meet the guy at BART. The BART police arrested him, and went to his house and found all these bikes.

http://claycord.com/2013/01/09/bart-...bicycle-thief/


BART Police have arrested an alleged serial bicycle thief.

The following information is from BART:

57-year-old Richmond resident Marque Moore’s first mistake was to have a stolen bike in his possession, his second was to try to sell it back to its owner. Fortunately for the bike theft victim, BART Police Officers were on hand when Moore agreed to meet at BART’s Ashby Station. The owner of the bike confirmed that the bicycle Moore was trying to sell was actually stolen from a residential burglary in the City of San Francisco three months prior. When BART Police searched Moore’s residence, officers discovered more than 10 bicycles, 57 bicycle tires, 24 bicycle wheels, 26 bicycle wheels with tires, 21 bike seats, 4 bicycle frames, a gun and ammunition. BART Police Investigators are looking for the owners of the recovered items to identify and claim their property.

BART Police booked Moore at Glen Dyer Jail in Oakland for two counts of possession of stolen property, felon in possession of a firearm, felon in possession of ammunition and violation of probation.

Once the recovered bicycles and/or parts are positively identified as stolen, additional charges will be sought through the District Attorney’s Office, and owners can be reunited with their property.

BART has posted photographs of the recovered bicycles and frames at: http://www.bart.gov/about/police/recovered_bikes.aspx so theft victims have access to identify their stolen property. In order to claim their property, owners must provide either a case number from a theft report, or other proof it belongs to them. Examples of such proof would be a receipt/proof of purchase which shows the serial number, or other identifiable marks unique to the bicycle.

If you recognize the bicycle, frame or other parts as yours telephone the BART Police Investigations Unit at (510) 464-7040.

I would take that Motobecane... I mean, not as in 'steal', but if the original owner never shows up.

Are there auctions for stuff the police department doesn't manage to reunite to the owner? I've heard of such stuff, don't know if its standard practice though.

I can't speak for the Contra Costa or BART police, but down in SJ there is a private company that has occasional auctions for the PD -- all kinds of merchandise at once. Just call your local PD, they can refer you

This guy used to sell off Carlson Blvd. in Richmond until he got shut down. He doesn't steal them but has no problem buying questionable stuff for resale... usually at flea markets.
