Recovery Information

Recovery Notes: 
On 7/12/2012, the victim reported that he had left the info about his bikes with a local resale shop; several hours later the shop called and reported there were "two dudes with my bikes in the store." Victim writes: "I went over there, and recovered both bikes :) Unfortunately the police (called twice) did NOT show up. It is possible to find a stolen bike if you act fast (and have a lot of luck, like I did today!)"
