Found my bike on craigslist


I found my bike frame on craigslist and would an advice on this community. My bike was stolen in Portland a month ago and I found the bike frame posted on Craigslist in Seattle. I dont have the serial number of the frame but the scratches on the frame match my exact frame.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Hi! When in doubt, search the BP archives… This Q & A with a portland police officer might help you.

Not suggesting you’re lying, but it’s desirable that the police require some sort of compelling evidence. It would be pretty scary if they just went by words of anyone who reports it.

What might help is if you have a photo or video uploaded somewhere with you in it that shows when it was uploaded. For example, YouTube video from a year ago that shows upload date.
