Note: At 7:29pm this evening I published a story based on a Craigslist post (it has since been flagged and is no longer visible) that contained photos and serious allegations about a bike thief working in Southeast Portland. In the past hour I have heard from several personal friends of the alleged thief and they vouch that he is nothing of the sort (and I believe them because they are also friends of mine).
I have removed the story and I apologize for any confusion it might have caused. I also regret helping to perpetuate — if even for just a few hours — something that was simply not true.
