“Pics of Robin Hood attached.”


“Dear PoPville,

Writing to share a couple pictures of someone who stole my bike seat on Saturday morning so readers can keep an eye out.

He didn’t try to take the bike but cut my thick cable lock and took my saddle + seat post around 4:30 AM on Saturday at 6th & Florida NW. Luckily we caught the whole thing on video. Here are a couple of screenshots of him, undeterred by the frigid weather or the cars that stop at the red light a few feet behind him when he nonchalantly cuts the lock, pulls the seat out and puts it in his backpack. He rode away in the dark, surely rushing the harvested organ to a dying bike in need of a saddle transplant. That’s what I like to think anyway.

Pics of Robin Hood attached.”


Another reader sends this live action from Capitol Hill:

“I know 2016 has been a bad year, but stealing a Christmas wreath off the front door? That’s low.”

I give you the Kinks:
