Incident Description: 
On 11/16/23, the victim reported that the bike had been recovered: "Yes, actually [the CSBR] played a pivotal role. The way I found my bike was a guy saw the listing on OfferUp 3 weeks later, and he got suspicious that the price was so low. So he searched the registry and saw my entry and then texted me, I then confirmed it was mine. I set up a meeting to "buy" the bike with the thief and brought the police and got it back quickly. Thank you guys for the service!" [I store my bike in my house's closed garage. The thief hopped my yard fence and entered garage yard door in rear of garage, that door was unlocked. Bike was not locked to anything inside my garage.]
