... bike theft and recovery...

... somebody went to the bike shop and (foolishly!) just leaned the bike against the rail and went in to get a tube.

Green truck w/ trailer pulled up, snatched it, and went off -- but its license was obtained... police said, "we know these guys."
Owner of bicycle called Mack's Recycling and ... sure enough, the thieves had brought it there, and they came back later with more bikes, and the police came then, too. (Don't know past that... this was yesterday.)

Yea, would be nice if recylcing places didn't accept bikes (especially trucks goin' out and getting more!) so ... I hope conversations like that are happening with the recycling place in question.
