Bike theft in the Upper Haight and Sunset District is so commonplace that one more just doesn't feel worth reporting. However, this particular bike burglary struck us as being chock full of life lessons.
According to police, a resident of the 1200 block of Seventh Avenue reported his bike stolen from the unsecured common space of his apartment complex. The resident reviewed surveillance from the complex and saw the man who took his bike.
The victim drove around the neighborhood, looking for the man and his bicycle, and sure enough spotted man with bike in front of the McDonald's on Haight and Stanyan, according to police reports.
