    The Los Altos PD always get their man. The victim provided a good description of the van, and local police spotted it and pulled it over.

    I heard another story of a pannier full of gear that was stolen off of a bike, same city (Los Altos, CA). Pannier recovered (less some cash) a few days later when police saw the bike gear in the back seat during a traffic stop.
