I stopped an auto break in last night. Not as exciting as the recovery of Robís bike but nonetheless, these scum bags got caught.
I was in the garage, unhooking my charger from the bike cuz it took a really long time to start after parking in the rain during the day for my commute home, so I thought Iíd give it a charge before the next morning. I heard my dog go nuts while I was buttoning everything back up, I went outside to look, thinking it's the neighbour I don't like messing with my dog, but it was 2 guys. One was working on a car across the alley, the other standing on my side of the alley on the look out. I was standing there looking at them, while my dog is barking and he kept trying to shove something down the window. I walk back to the garage causally like I didnít give a shit about them, but really went inside to call 911.
Police came within minutes with a police dog and in the end they told me they caught the guys. The caught them elsewhere while I was filling out the police statement. The officer collecting my statement heard it over the radio and told me. Although it made me stay up and loose an hour of sleep, itís worth it because the neighbour probably wonít frown so badly upon my noisy bike now
Morale: Donít turn a blind eye because it could easily have been you, and they may be back if they know your area is easy pickinís.
