Cycling enthusiast creates Facebook group to help recover stolen bikes
When Spencer Elliott saw about a dozen or so of his friends get their bikes stolen, he decided to do something about it.
He created the Stolen Bike Hunt - Houston Facebook page.
"It's for basically when someone gets a bike stolen, they can throw a picture up and have it for everyone else to see," said Elliott. "If they spot [the bike], we can message each other and get it back."
With more than 1,900 cycling enthusiasts as members, the page equals a lot of eyes on the road.
Members can call police or contact the real owners if they spot a stolen bike.
Since starting his page, Elliott says it has helped recover at least a dozen stolen bicycles and led to one arrest. http://www.khou.com/community/Cycling-enthusiast-creates-Facebook-group-to-help-recover-stolen-bikes-266697841.html
