The players: Sgt. Joe got the ATM transaction information from Wells Fargo, got his address from the DMV, gave Mr. Pudge a visit and retrieved the bike. Read the whole story at Velo Review.

Finally, Sgt Joe's tips on identifying stolen bikes: And I call that good detective work.

Good story, but I ride on clipless pedals with street shoes pretty often. I hope that doesn't make me a suspect.
 
Yeah, I think I'd also fall victim to profiling.
 
We should get a bunch of cycling blogs to start a collection for this cop, maybe an unofficial reward or something.

Talk about an awesome cop.
 
What are the odds on conviction? Receiving stolen goods--pretty good. Bike theft (in this case grand larceny)--very poor.
 
...this is like a love story, only better...
...major props to the very astute matthew, who's heads up move was the first step in getting this ball rolling & to officer santos, who's diligence, knowledge of procedure & maybe an understanding of just how important that bike was to brigette, brought this tale to a happy ending...

...hey, fritz, thats my bike !!!...
...sorry, just checkin'...
 
..."who's" should be "whose" but you knew that when you read it...
 
Whose who's, peddle pedals, their they're, it's its all the same.

And yeah, that cop did good.
