To the right is a photo of an alleged bike thief.   It sounds as if she carries bolt cutters in that bag. Be on the lookout.

A close friend of mine saw this girl trying to steal her roomates bike from outside their apartment on queen street right at bathurst last night. The girl claimed her boyfriend told her to pick up her bike in this location and that the bike matched his description.

    If police cared about cyclists, they would set up bait bikes to catch and charge all these criminals. But no, police are too busy sitting past red lights to give tickets.

    “The girl claimed…” ?
    Did someone speak to her while/after she tried to steal the bike?

  • JoFergus

    I wonder where the cops are acquiring their bait bikes these days…Now that they’re not doing biz with Kenk anymore.

  • Michael Holloway

    Police called? Result? End of the story please.

    Good idea, but, that’s called entrapment and they couldn’t make charge stick.

  • ALEX MCLEOD STILL

    PROBABLY JUST THOUGHT IT WAS HER BIKE CAN U IMAINGE HOW EMBARRAS THIS POOR CHILD IS NOW?

  • That’s not entrapment at all.

  • “Entrapment is a practice whereby a law enforcement agent induces a person to commit a criminal offense that the person would have otherwise been unlikely to commit”

    If a bike has been left unlocked, it doesn’t force a passer-by into stealling it. Locked or unlocked, if you take that person’s bike, it is still bike-theft, and you deserve to be charged.

    Police use bait cars in Hamilton, but there is a sign that says there is a bait car here, so yeah – they have been notified. I can’t believe scumbags who steal can use that as a defense in court *entrapment* pfft
