Recovery Information

Recovery Notes: 
On July 29 2010 the victim wrote: I just wanted to report that my bike (theft report #190116, Raleigh Cruiser) was recovered. I saw a guy riding it on the street (right in front of where it was stolen from) and confronted him. I'm not sure if he was the thief or not, but something tells me he was because it didn't take much to convince him to give it back to me. I don't know if this information is relevant to the registry or not, but I thought I would inform you in case it was. Thanks.
