Craigslist ad leads police to alleged bike thieves

Biking ElsewhereBELLINGHAM — Two Bellingham men were arrested Thursday, May 7, after police discovered the pair had been stealing bicycles and selling them on Craigslist.

The investigation began when a woman, whose mountain bike had been stolen, told Bellingham Police she thought she saw the bicycle for sale on Craigslist, said Mark Young, police spokesman. An officer went to the Web site, tracked down the listing and saw the bike being offered for $1,500. The ad included a picture that matched the description of the woman’s bicycle, Young said.

The police officer called the phone number provided in the listing and set up a time with the seller to buy the bike.

The officer drove an unmarked patrol car to a local shopping center where he met Jeremy Randall Schuitema, 22, who came to the meeting riding the bike, Young said. The officer checked the serial number, which matched that of the woman’s missing mountain bike.

Sorry, Portland

Biking ElsewhereBeing involved with the more established bike groups as well as the alt bike culture this article raises an interesting thought, what if bike friendly cities were rated by Critical Mass, Ally Cat races, bike polo and the number of fixed gear riders?

This is a viral gathering, NOT officially sponsored by:

The Baltimore Metropolitan Council
The Baltimore City Dept of Transportation

OK, not even unofficially sponsored by the above.

Come meet your fellow city cyclists.
Trade MTA horror stories.
Compare routes.
Compare equipment (you know you always are anyway).
Refuel for the evening ride.
But don't get too hammered to track a straight line.

Be there or be square!
