How is this not News? Okay, so it's not the most 'glamourous' of stories...the most daring....and yet, it is a story because a CRIME was committed. However, insignificant you may think it was, stealing is a crime. I am thankful for the Pleasanton PD everyday. They keep our 'small' town safe.

Personally, I'm glad the Weekly reported on this. I've been trying to drill it into my teenager to not leave his bike unlocked or on the front porch. Now I can show him a story, and maybe he'll believe mom on this point. We know our town is no longer a "hometown" when catching a bike thief is NO longer news.

Bike theft is so common, so easy, and so ignored by police that this is news. The only thing easier than stealing a bike seems to be catching a bike thief in a sting. Good for Pleasanton Police, and let's do this more often!

Hey Roy Bean, what are you talking about? Your surprised PPD caught a criminal? They have 90 cops there! It is hardly possible to roll through the city without getting stopped! I got stopped for having a license plate light out! I didnt even know there was such a thing. These cops stop everything and investigate anyone. Maybe they havent caught any criminals because the criminals know to not come to Pleasanton!
