I can't believe what I have seen on this thread...personal info, pictures, address for a guy you don't know anything of, you don't have any proof he is guilty of stealing the bike...only because he looks "dangerous"........
Exactly what I said. I reported the post to the mods but nothing changed...

Fencing IS a crime! Whether done knowingly or not.

I can imagine that going round with a big sword is looked upon with a frown (we are in Switzerland after all). But how do you do that accidentally?

I agree, but most of us, if not all, know nothing about OP either. Shall we take her word that this man is guilty of either stealing or fancing?
What if someone puts your personal details on a public forum and pretends you've done something...so that was my point.
The story might be true, but let the authorities rule the case, besides, I really do not understand why the OP didn't alert the police in the first place. It is beyond my understanding.

LE: Sorry, she reported to the police..anyhow, I still think that is not O.K. to put personal info of someone before that person it's found guilty in a court.

Ah, thanks. I often get confused at my age.

I was going to give advice about hedging and chain link, but I'm glad I thought better of it.

Just love how the guy is already found guilty of stolen a bike...

It is because he looks scary? Because he is the one who sold it? Maybe he sold the bike on the behalf of someone else? Maybe, like this guy on the forum, he didn't know it was stolen ().

I do not agree of having his picture, personal informations, etc published on the forum. I think it is very wrong indeed.

As long as the guy is not found guilty by the real autorities, he is innocent.
Very true!! Thanks for pointing it out!!
But the cops do need to meet this guy in the first place, and then take it from there!!

I thought it involved wooden posts, a mallet and barbed wire.

Cheers,

Not anymore.

Barbed wire is frowned upon - electric fences are the current trend.

Re: Stolen Bike (from the building not the street) then sold and bought online

Hi,

1) Any update, we do care about your stolen bike story, and maybe can be additional support.

2) Keep sending any new information to the police, but don't go anything yourself, as we already discussed. Remember the "suspect" is weird.

3) Like everyone else said, not a very nice thing to keep posting details about the suspect. OK you identified he made the sell, you've posted his youtube to get feedback on the fact that he was dangerous. Which was blocking you to take further actions. Fair enough.

But any other "private thing" should be given to you by PM; so you send any useful information to the police...


So far he is still a strong suspect, but that's it- Unless you plan to go vigilente and all that, keep with sending information and suspicions to the police.
After all, he might be innocent (maybe he is just a nutter who like army stuff and his son used his Ricardo account or anything stupid and possible).

Anyway keep hopes !

You probably meant good but:

With private infos and "vigilente mode" you can probably get infos from that guy. But he might be not that guilty after all... And we already identified that the police will try to do something...

So it was nice intention but maybe sending to the OP by PM was more appropriate. That way she could have contacted the police with your extra infos.



And by PM it leaves the OP, privacy to do "whatever" she thinks acceptable to do... without bothering with 10 comments on "hooo he is innocent, blabla".

Re: Stolen Bike (from the building not the street) then sold and bought online

Wow I have not checked this thread in a few days and it has gone in interesting directions. As far as personal information being posted here, it's information that is publically available online, people put their information online and if it's not protected by the user then it's the user's responsibility. If it's not protected by the site that claims to protect your info then it's their fault. That information was gathered simply by doing a google search. That's why you should Google yourself just to see what you can find to know how well you are protecting your info.

In any case, I wanted to give a quick update. I got a call from the police today, that they have located my bike and I will be able to get it back. I did not recieve more information yet since the guy in charge of that department was not available at that moment. I had also made the insurance claim but had not sent in the information yet to get the compensation, which ended up being a good thing, because the police told me that if I had received money from the insurance already then the bike would be property of the insurance and would go to them, not back to me. The compensation from the insurance would have not been covered the cost for a similar bike. So all in all, I think thigs are turning out for the best (I hope). I will see how many days to get the bike back

Cheers!

Re: Stolen Bike (from the building not the street) then sold and bought online

And that is true, we don't know if the guy who sold it is the guy who stole it, I said that since the beginning, and that is the police's job to find out. What we can't deny is that if he did not stole it, most likely he knows who did. I don't think someone stole it, just left it on the sidewalk, and then this guy found it by chance (sure could happen, but not very likely).

maybe the guy was cleaning his other bike when a stranger walked past with your bike and sold it to him?
