Hi folks,

Sadly Christine's lovely Benno Boost e-bike was stolen from UCSF Mission Bay yesterday afternoon / early evening. It has custom painted teal front and rear racks on it; no other bike would have racks in that colour. If you see it anywhere please get in touch.

TIA,
Peter

We spotted my bike being ridden on Bryant under the freeway yesterday evening. Sadly, we lost sight of it but it might still be in that area if anyone is biking around there. 👀👀👀

OMG--will keep my eyes peeled! Is there anyone in particular at the SFPD that we should ask for if we see it? (In case that speeds the response!)

I've filed the police report with UCSF police. Last night when I called them they connected me with the city police but didn't get back to me for a couple hours. I can't remember the officer's name either but he was only working until midnight last night so I don't think so.

Do you have a case number with SFPD?  
Maybe callers can report sightings by case number?  Even if thief is homeless, he needs to charge it up, right? At some point, it may need service ....or at least air.  Post a reward at 7/11 type quicky marts, liquor stores, and gas stations in area. Maybe he stole it to sell for drug/alcohol money. Look on Craigslist for any bike sales.

I have a case # with UCSF police not with SFPD. 
Have not considered posters/reward - thanks for that suggestion!
Have been looking at craigslist and offerup.

In related news....


A theft ring targeting expensive bicycles is far more sophisticated than your standard Walgreens shoplifters, creating a new wrinkle for criminal justice advocates who prefer not to incarcerate non-violent offenders.  

At first glance, today’s Chronicle story of two alleged high-end bicycle thieves seems tailor-made for the Recall Chesa Boudin movement: Both suspects have extensive burglary rap sheets (seven and thirteen arrests, respectively), both were on probation and not incarcerated, and both were arrested at Seventh and Market, an intersection that, in the words of the Chronicle, is “known to be the center of the stolen goods trade in San Francisco.”

if you have an intersection that is the center of the stolen goods trade, how can you not allocate a full time cop to that intersection just to break them up

Since when has the SFPD ever done anything to help a bicyclist, or anything really to curb property crime?
