Reader takes action, gets stolen bike back

Whoever got this silver Specialized stolen yesterday, we have some good news.

This just in from reader Chris K.:

I was riding a block from the office yesterday when I saw the bike and recognized it as my coworkers. Followed to dude to a stop light and told him it was my friends and that I was going to get it back. He argued for a while while I was on the phone with the cops but eventually threw it down and walked away when he realized I was serious. The look on her face was priceless, when I carried the bike back into the office. That’s two recovered bikes for me this summer!

My girlfriend had a bike stolen today. We have a description. Do you remember what this guy looked like/was driving? The guys that took her bike are apparently driving around Portland just picking up one after another. Long shot but hoping it’s related.
