Here’s an update to the story about a burglary at Weir’s Cyclery in St. Johns courtesy of Ira Ryan (who works in the basement of the shop),
“The cops recovered 10 bikes and most of the other stuff last night. The thief was a resident tweaker in St. Johns who the cops are on a first-name basis with.
He was trying to sell them in the plaza in downtown St. Johns and the cops followed him to his house (just 4-5 blocks from the precinct) where they found nearly everything that was stolen.”
Ryan says the bikes are a bit mangled and that the cops suspect that the remaining bikes were immediately parted out and sold.
