Wig-Wearing Bike Bandit Busted in the Upper Haight

Cyclists plagued by ongoing bike theft in the Haight will be happy to know that police have finally busted a man they claim is likely responsible for a rash of bike thefts in the area.

On Jan. 19, officers saw a man casually riding a bike out of a garage on the 300 block of Broderick. According to Park Station police, it was clear the man had just cut the lock off the bike prior to riding off. However, when officers ordered him to stop, the man just continued pedaling.

The cops managed to chase the suspect down; when he finally stopped, his wig fell off, revealing his head of blue hair.
