Re: Venting: Thieves Suck!!!
So get this...I don't give up easy and was home for lunch when I just decided to follow up on a hunch that my son had mentioned, about a local house 2 blocks away with kids riding what he thought might the bike that was left in place of my sons bike. Sure enough, I drive by that house and there is his bike laying next to the house. I verified it by looking at the serial and knew it was his by the Nashbar bottle cage I had put on 2 days earlier. I spoke with the neighbors about what I was doing and he said that the same 2 kids had broke into his sons truck the week before and had taken a cell phone. One of the two kids walked down the street out the house when the neighbors and I were talking, he didn't even say anything about the bike and only looked back at me when I drove by.
I called the cops and reported the incident. They said they would fill out the forms to increase patrols when they could through that neighborhood.
EDIT: Helles Yeah I grabbed the bike. If I was 10 minutes later the kid might have been gone on it again.
