so here you go. Posted this to Oppo the other day. Next day thing goes up for sale on a facebook ad. My friend actually went to go meet the guy with the fuzz in tow. Bike is back, dude got arrested. There is justice in the world. See video of the bust here (sorry video only uploaded to facebook).
Also "I've received an unofficial request from the CPD. They're wondering if we could get every other theft victim in the city to locate their own stolen stuff and arrange a conveniently scheduled time for the cops to drop by and scoop up the thief."
