San Francisco Bicycle Thief Gets App-Rehended
San Francisco is home to a huge amount of cyclists. Unfortunately, the city is plagued with a massive amount of bicycle theft. About 1 out of every 15 cyclists in San Francisco have had a bicycle stolen from them. Suzy Safdie, a resident of San Francisco, was riding with her nephew on her new $1200 Cannondale Synapse. They went to visit Suzy's sister, rode up the elevator with their bikes and left the bikes outside the door. Suzy's bike was stolen within 2 minutes, taken down the elevator, and vanished with the thief. However, Suzy realized her iPhone was with her bike. She logged into iCloud in order to use 'Find my iPhone", notified police officers of the situation and the location of the thief. Officers found the thief, arrested him, and returned the bike all within 45 minutes. The thief will be charged with a misdemeanor theft charge. “They let him off on my charge with a misdemeanor, which I find ridiculous,” Safdie says. “If they don’t do anything more serious, it’s just going to keep happening.”
