Recovery Information

Recovery Notes: 
On 5/14/2012, the victim writes: I received a call yesterday from Jesse at Comrade Cycles on Chicago Ave. He stated that he had found my stolen bike. I was amazed and grateful since it had been so long that it had been missing. I asked him how it came about and he said that a customer brought it in for a flat tire repair. He noticed that the customer wasn't wearing proper cycling shoes to match that clipless pedals that are on the bike. He thought that something might have been off so he checked the stolen bike registry and saw that it had been reported stolen.
