Bicycle thefts by drug users are up but apparently not for the reason you might think. Instead of stealing bikes to pawn off for a quick buck, meth users swipe bikes to fulfill another craving -- a weird obsession to tinker and fiddle with things with their hands." According to the news article, "Crystal meth is a stimulant, but because it destroys brain cells at such a rapid rate, its users are drawn to menial, repetitive activities." Sounds a little like blogging.

Meth users reportedly also steal computers, lawn mowers, stereos and copy machines for the same reasons.
