Props to “Two AMAZING bike messengers”

stolen bike

“Dear PoPville,

My boyfriends apartment at 13th and Park NW was broken into over the weekend while we were out of town. They stole multiple items (a brand new MacBook Pro, two Nikon SLR’s, PS4, etc) including his prized possession, his Cinelli road bike that he has been building for years.
We had friends in the DC bike community post pics of it on all the groups/blogs and today got a message that a woman was trying to sell it in Dupont Circle.

Two AMAZING bike messengers recognized the bike and confronted her, taking this picture (thats HIS bike in the pic that she is holding onto, and this pic has also been shared with the police). She fled the scene when she heard police were on their way but we got the bike!!!

Wanted to share this with the community with the hopes of 1: finding this person 2: recovering some of the other items 3: maybe they know about other burglaries in the area. Any help would be amazing – if anything, just WATCH OUT for this person!!!!!”
