Recovery Information

Recovery Notes: 
On 8/19/2012, the victim writes: We got our Trek junior road racing bike back (stolen from garage last summer)! Ryan A messaged me this afternoon that he found it locked up at Halsted / Diversey. He put his own lock on it, looked up police report # on Stolen Bike Registry and called 311. How did he know? Nick S (manages Play It Again Sports) told me he saw someone riding it nearby recently, and actually spoke with the guy (flipped bars...Meant for someone <5'). We were all talking about it before the last Wednesday Night Ride! I contacted the CPD. Within 10 minutes they were onsite and snapped off the lock. Yea for my cycling friends! An hour of degreaser it looks perfect.
