If your bike was rudely snatched recently, you might want to peruse these photos of bikes and bike parts that BART police recovered after one victim spotted his property for sale on Craigslist.

After a San Francisco man saw his stolen bike posted for sale on Craigslist, he contacted the seller to arrange a meeting -- but not before alerting the cops, according to press reports.

When the victim and suspect met up at the Ashby Station on Sunday, BART officers interrupted the transaction and arrested 57-year-old Marque Moore on suspicion of possession of stolen property. They later searched his Richmond home and found even more bikes that police believe were stolen.

Now's your chance to reclaim your two-wheel transportation. According to BART, theft victims can easily identify their stolen property online, but in order to claim their property, owners must provide either a case number from a theft report, or other proof it belongs to them, including a receipt or proof of purchase which shows the serial number, or other identifiable marks unique to the bicycle.

If you recognize your bicycle, frame, or other parts, give BART Police Investigations Unit a call at (510) 464-7040.

Here are some photos of the recovered bikes:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
