That’s because it is. In 2012, 585 bikes were reported stolen in San Francisco – that doesn’t include the many more thefts that weren’t reported.

And the bikes that are recovered usually don’t make it back to their owners, because the police don’t have enough information. &nbsp;</span></p><p> Fri, 30 May 2014 04:13:53 +0000 Isabel Angell 25981 at http://kalw.org Citizens solve bike theft crimes with social media
