Late on 8/8/2014, the victim wrote:"I filed a report earlier today about my bike being stolen in Evanston - just wanted to let you know that we got it back! My boyfriend spotted a girl riding it through Rogers Park on his way home from work. He was able to track her down and get the bike from her. According to her, she bought it for $25 from a guy in (neighborhood withheld during police inquiry). The police took down all of the info and are looking into it - apparently he has a garage full of stolen bikes. I hope others can get their bikes returned as well!
