How's this for collaboration between bicyclists and SFPD? Captain Teresa Barrett of Park Station described for BIKE NOPA a "great arrest" that she had last week at Page and Masonic. Here's how it went down:
"A bike rider who works at a downtown bike shop was following a suspect who stole two bikes earlier in the week. The suspect was on foot and the witness on his cell phone on his bike, broadcasting the suspect's location."
"I was able to arrest the suspect with Lt. Frost from the night watch. He confessed to stealing two bikes....the bikes were worth over $2500 each."
"A good crime-fighting day and great job on the part of the biker."
Park Station shines.
In addition to snagging a bike thief, district officers cited another 13 motorists for running the red light at Fell and Masonic. The special pedestrian sting Task Force would have been at the intersection too if a demonstration in town hadn't pulled them off regular duty.
