BART Arrest Leads to Discovery of Stolen Bicycles

Police say a Richmond man stole at least 10 bicycles. They're trying to find the owners now.

BART police have arrested a man they say stole at least 10 bicycles and had more than 100 pieces of bike equipment in his possession.

Authorities took into custody 57-year-old Richmond resident Marque Moore at the Ashby BART station in Berkeley.

Police say Moore was trying to sell a bicycle stolen in San Francisco three months ago back to its original owner.

Authorities say a search of Moore's residence turned up more than 10 bicycles, 57 bicycle tires, 24 bicycle wheels, 21 bike seats, four bicycle frames, guns and ammunition.

Moore was booked into the Glenn Dyer Detention Facility in Oakland on suspicion of two counts of possession of stolen property, one count of a felon in possession of a firearm, one count of a felon in possession of ammunition and violation of parole.

Authorities said if they can confirm more of the bicycle property is stolen, they will add charges.

BART officials have set up a website with photos, so people who have had bikes stolen can check to see if their property is there. Victims will need proof that they own the stolen property.

I parked my 18 mnth old bicycle in Dublin Bart once at 9:30 am. Came back at 3:30pm and it was gone :-( Be warned!!

It is "only" a property crime so they'll promptly set him free. He will steal a bike ride home.

He also got it for a felon in possession of a firearm and ammo. This will keep him in for a while. We hope!

But wait how can a felon have a gun, I thought we had a law against that......
