“Dear PoPville,

Sadly it seems bike theft is widely accepted in DC. Bike was stolen from a locked bike room, the police won’t file a report of stolen property until they can review video surveillance. Found the bike being sold on Craigslist and asked the police what to do and they said to check the serial number when we meet the guy. Seems like not the best advice. For now they can file a report of lost property which will take 5 business days. Anyone else have any luck with this sort thing?”
