    This is no s**t, from inside a "locked" fire station in southeast Boise. Sometime between 2100 and 0500 this morning. Talk about brass balls. I went downstairs and saw that it was gone. I had taken it to work to clean it up for a trip to McCall next week. I figured it would be safe. I filed a police report and they are working on it......(theme song from Jeopardy now)...........There is a reward for the safe return of the bike. Thanks for the interest.
    Ride the bike.

    bummer Mark. I always wondered about station security when I was working, but was never so unlucky to find anything missing in the a.m. good luck recovering it.

    Yeah, thanks Jim. I couldn't freaking believe it. I thought somebody was messing with me but as I searched the station and realized it was GONE. . I made up a flyer and visited a bunch of the bike shops and pawn shops to help get the word out.

    Any surveillance around the station? when I worked in a station in Cali there was at least perimeter surveillance. It must have been an inside job. Someone who you work with probably? Feel for you but will keep an eye out. Do you have the serial number?

    No visual surveillance, there are electronic card readers on all exterior doors but, sometimes, they do not latch correctly. Which we have told the city maintenance people to come and fix before this happened. The city security person will check her computer records of door openings on Monday morning. So, it is a waiting game. I do have an older bike I can ride to take my frustrations out. I have seen only one other bike of the same make and model in the last year. It is a pretty rare bike. I spent big bank to get it. I do have the serial number and the police have it as well.

    If the detective that has been assigned to the case is doing his/her job then they'll be watching craigslist but so too can you.

    I'm not sure this works on craigs anymore but it's a good search engine for ebay.

    all three of my bikes (one was wifeys) stolen out of my garage two years ago ended up on Craigslist, my wife's custom Titus Racer X in less than 24 hours. The detective in my town was not successful in setting up a sting or get the ***** to meet. I eventually put in a claim with my homeowner's insurance. Thieves suck

    Was your garage door open? I shut mine even while mowing the back yard. Paranoid and probably burning out the garage door opener motor. Friend has his motorcycle pushed out of an open garage in broad daylight while he was in the house!

    My garage was broken into while I was upstairs sleeping. Luckily wifey was out of town with her Ibis Mojo with her. The got my road bike, my Ventana El Ciclon, and wifey's older Ti Racer X. Oddly, they didn't take my Moots YBB or my daughter's Voodoo. I'm pretty sure my garage was cased and we were the victim of a bike theft ring. Mtnbkrid sounds more like a theft of opportunity.

    I guess my point is, if you want the bike back, find out which detective has been assigned to the case and get his number. And then hound him. Otherwise, the sting of being violated will fade and the it's time to move on and collect the insurance money if that is an option with it being at the fire station.

    I found a bike this morning next to my garbage cans in the alley behind my home 11th and 12th between Resseguie and Pueblo.
    If you have had a bike stolen recently let me know the make and brand and maybe it is yours and you can get it back.

    Thanks for the link, I will be following up with the cop that took the report tonight when he gets on shift. I have been told to file a claim with my homeowners insurance but I am hesitant, I mean doesn't the city bear some responsibility? Not wanting to start a flame war.

    I guess if you can prove the door was faulty. Then the City could say you were too incompetent to shut the door behind you. Could get ugly. If someone left their car unlocked in a parking lot owned by the City and it was ransacked who is at fault?

    Sounds to me like a $20.00 lock would have saved a $4000.00 nightmare. .............

    Hey, I happened to catch a story on Ch7 news last night, police caught some guy who had been stealing bikes in Boise, traveling out of town, staying in a motel and selling them on CL. They are trying to get some of the bike to their rightful owners….might be worth looking into. There is probably more info on their website. Good luck...you're in my neighborhood, that freaks me out a little -nothing like happens around here *usually*
    Hey, is that a Huffy? That's a nice-lookin' bike, boy!

    After having 3 bikes stolen and having them pop up on craigslist in Portland.. I will say my investigator here in boise and the Portland pd were both totally useless.
    Keep an eye out on craigslist and when it pops up, be ready to drive there and call the pd when your on your way.
