Less thieves and more Good Samaritans wanted

May 06, 2020 By Brad Kellas 5418 Recovered Bikes


The general rule with bike theft is that the bikes are stolen to be sold.  It is unknown what the intention was of the cunning thief who stole this Giant TCR 1, from the victim's garage in Birchgrove NSW on 30 April 2020, as less than one week after the theft, the bike was found abandoned alongside a vacant building lot a few kilometers from where it was taken.

Although we don't know the arch-enemies' ultimate intent, what we do know is that we have one more new VAULT devotee Good Samaritan, who is now on the lookout for the growing list of stolen bikes, boats, cars, motorbikes, trailers, etc, etc that are on PropertyVAULT website - www.propertyvault.com.au.

Winners all round

The victim was overjoyed to get her bike back and her repetitive thank you's resulted in our sometimes over-generous admin team providing her with a free BIKE ID KIT+.   The NSW Police were happy to scratch off another stolen bike from their hot sheet and our Good Samaritan was given a Free LIFESTYLE ID KIT (Family Pack) for his good deed.
