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."

Sounds a little like blogging.
Meth users reportedly also steal computers, lawn mowers, stereos and copy machines for the same reasons.
