Recovery Information

Recovery Notes: 
Today (7/9/12) I got a call from an officer of the 19th district informing me that they have found my bike! Someone tried to sell it to Play It Again Sports at 3939 Ashalnd Ave. They ran the suspicious bike through the Chicago Stolen Bike Registry and found it due to the details in my description. The Police called me up, took the bike, and made the arrest. I picked it up from the police department and the man responsible is being charged with a felony for possession of stolen property. I couldn't have gotten it back without the good work you do. Thanks for everything.
