The Face of Bicycle Theft in Civic Center – What Happens When You Show the SFPD an Open-Air Chop ShopFriday, October 25th, 2013
[UPDATE: SFPD Anti Bike Theft @SFPDBikeTheft reminds us all that a Tweet in their direction can be helpful when you see scenes such as this.
“Crimes In Progress Call 911. Report a Chop Shop call (415) 553-0123. Anti Bike Theft Information From the SFPD”]
Here it is, from Bob Bobster:
“I spotted this charming couple at work across the street from the Civic Auditorium today at about 4:30pm. at the corner of Hayes and Larkin. They had quite an assortment of tires, bike frames, and parts on display. A woman who works nearby came out of the building, and when she saw me watching told me she had already called the cops. What was their response, I asked? Well, the cops said they’d send somebody over, but unless you can prove the stuff is stolen it’s hard to do much. I went to the library and came out 10 minutes later – nothing had changed. No cops in sight. I walked around the corner to Market and saw three motorcycle cops ticketing drivers. I told one of the cops about this and he said he would call it in to the homeless squad (I’m paraphrasing here).”
Thx for the report, Bobster!
