On 9/5/2-13 the victim's wife wrote to report her husband had found someone selling this bike on the street, and bought it from the seller, who he felt was likely the thief. We at the Chicago Stolen Bike Registry are disappointed that no effort was made to involve law enforcement, and would like to discourage others from offering rewards or payment of any type for stolen bicycles, as we would like to see bicycle thievery choked out, not encouraged. Please contact us for guidance if you find yourself in such a situation!
