“There’s a big pile of stolen bikes sitting on a public sidewalk”

“Dear PoPville,

There’s a big pile of stolen bikes sitting on a public sidewalk just off Mt. Olivet Road in Trinidad/Ivy City. They aren’t chained to anyone’s property – they’re just sitting along an empty stretch of sidewalk and the pile keeps getting bigger. This has been going on for months. My neighbors and I keep calling 311, our councilmember, and MPD to ask them to do something – unfortunately the District doesn’t really care about much that goes on around here and has ignored all of our requests. How can we get these bikes out of here, and maybe back to the people they belong to, or at least someone who needs them?
