Excellent work - Craigslist is filled with suspect deals on bikes, its nice to see the police acting on this.

So did the resident get his bikes returned? Or are they being held as "evidence"?

Nice to hear the PAPD took someone seriously.
I wish the MVPD was the same.
My son had his much beloved P2 stolen in Mt. View last year.
This was something that we worked on for two years, only to have the MVPD tell us that "it is only a bicycle"!
Good job PAPD!
