My block in town did do a reverse crime stoppers! There was a quite decent bicycle left unlocked next to the pool. It was there for two days.Residents determined that none of them owned it. No not always easy :)

It had a sticker from Quaid Auctioneers which enabled a trace to an owner in Westcout who had no idea that her garage had been broken into and the bike stolen.

Presumably this was the easiest way for someone to just cycle to town from Westcourt?
