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.

If you identify your bicycle, e-mail Ingleside Police Station at

  • 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.'"
