Two teenagers were busted with a cache of 21 stolen bicycles in Ingleside Heights yesterday. Cops in the neighborhood nabbed the two 17-year-old boys after one victim of bike theft spotted his ride for sale on Craigslist. And now, for the good news: as they've been doing for some time down in the bike theft-prone Mission District, the Mission Police station has posted photos of the recovered bicycles in hopes of reuniting them with their owners who are probably tired of walking everywhere.
Anyhow, as it turns out, the salesman behind the Craigslist ad listing wasn't the crook, but he did lead authorities to the residence where they recovered the bikes and booked the two deplorable teens on charges of conspiracy and multiple counts of possession of stolen property.
Photos of the recovered bike can be found here on the Mission Station's site. If you do happen to be one of the 21 victims, you'll want to drop the Ingleside Station a line at: (415) 404-4000 or [email protected] And there are even more stolen bikes still waiting to be claimed.
