The police did get a warrant to search the perp’s apartment. Where they found various bike tools and bike components.
And Lo! Some of mine were among them!
The sergeant in charge of my case sent me some pics and asked if any of the components looked familiar. Hellz yeah, they did!
Along with a list of the components still missing– including my saddle. (Sad face).
The good news is that I will get at least some of my original components back. And I also know for sure that the guy they caught is the guy responsible for stealing my shit.
Maybe I’ll get lucky and the police find some more of my shit.
