Help This Woman Get Her Stolen Bike Back: The Most Dramatic Plea Ever
This bike theft flier -- how often do you get this kind of drama and plot development in a lost bike plea? -- got our attention today at the corner of 3rd Street and 1st Avenue. In it, Jessica explains that a bike she'd just acquired through the trade of a painting -- which she'd worked on for 9 months -- was stolen at Ludlow and E. Houston on Wednesday, after she'd ridden it just two weeks. She'd left it outside, locked, for 30 minutes. "I'm really sad about it," she told us. She's offering a reward and said "I will pay as much as they want" to get it back. Bike owners: Be careful. Everyone: Be on the lookout for Jessica's bike. [JDoll]
