Actually not so exciting that they were arrested again, but that there's solid detective work, evidence, and publicity this time.
I can't say too much about these guys publicly, but this is significant. Too bad it took suburban police to reign them in, however temporarily.
Julie, I think it somewhat likely your coworker's bike is among those seized. I know Chicago and UIC police are in the habit of checking CSBR as a matter of routine, but I don't know about the suburban police.
wow - i agree. finally some good news.
NO...not good news, but GREAT news.
It's a slightly dated article (6/29). We provided them with a link to the Chicago Stolen Bike Registry and they were able to identify two bikes from there.
But it should serve as a reminder to everyone to write down their serial number and register their bike.
