Last week, we alerted readers to the SFPD's great find: a huge stash of stolen bikes. Of course, this news sent recent bike theft victims into a frenzy, hoping one of those recovered bikes was theirs.
Today, police released a full list of the bikes along with enlarged photos of each so that cyclists can get a good look and identify their missing bike. You can find the photos of the bikes here.
If you spot your bike, you must provide a police report number or some other proof of ownership, including purchase receipts and serial numbers, to get your bike back, said Officer Carlos Manfredi.
Police found the bikes after a judge issued a search warrant on May 15, which led officers to 18-year-old Irving Sanchez's house on the 200 block of Charter Oak Avenue. There they found eight stolen bikes stored in the kitchen.
After further investigation, police came across two self-serve storage lockers located on the 5200 block of Coliseum Way in Oakland, where they found another 106 stolen bicycles. In addition, they discovered 80 bike ties and a bicycle frame inside the storage locker, police said.
Sanchez was arrested on May 17 and booked into San Francisco County Jail on numerous felony counts of receiving stolen property.
