To Catch A Thief


Was your bike (top) pinched yesterday?

Was one of your readers the victim of a bike theft in Dún Laoghaire?

Joe runs the Dublin Loves Bikes bike shop on York Road, Dún Laoghaire. Yesterday he saw a thief steal a bicycle in the middle of my town.

Many people might decide to ignore a criminal wielding a bolt cutters but Joe followed the thief to the DART station and confronted him.

He has the stolen bike in his shop now.

In fairness

    Have met Joe a few times out cycling, a real gentleman.

    Was really hoping you would unmask the guy Joe, like the end of Scooby Doo!! hehe

    Great work!

    Good work detective!. So he was getting on the dart with the bike? Is that allowed? A pity AGS can’t do this job, garda station just down the street. Like shooting fish in a barrel I would have thought, you’d have a healthy arrest sheet.

    In the absence of an effective, visible police force, this course of action is the only way this type of crime will be dealt with.
    Our Gardai think they are owed a living are only serving time until they collect the Rolls Royce pension.
    You wouldn’t believe the attitude a lot of them have with regard to their job.
