Leave it to the Lower East Side to log some of the first arrests regarding stolen Citi Bikes. Apparently that’s how we roll.
The Daily News reports that two perps, aged 22 and 34, were cuffed yesterday after admitting to stealing bikes from the corral at Stanton and Chrystie Streets. No fancy tech savvy was used in the crime – the duo simply yanked the rides from their docks. By chance, two plainclothes officers happened to be investigating unrelated reports of stolen credit cards used to rent bikes at this station, and asked the suspects to see receipts. And that was that.
