"Tell the police about the woman and phone call, and ask for their advice. Either she bought a 'hot' bike; is a hoax trying to get money out of you; or is associated with the thief.

"That does indeed sound suss. I wonder if there's any point alerting Gary Mills, Elizabeth Star Cycles, in case she got her "reward" out of a local resident since the call. (I believe Bike Station helped to track a distinctive bike…"
"well she never replied, never sent a picture of the bike or called back. My guess is she freaked out when realizing it was all over the net, too difficult to sell illegally and needed money for drugs (prob why she called at 1 am). Phone…"

From City North Messenger of Wednesday 5-Sep-2012 on page 6. Adelaide: A 61-year-old woman was arrested after she allegedly pawned a stolen bike on Tuesday 21-Aug-2012.

Today I saw your flyers on bicycle parking around Rundle Mall. (Have you checked AC group Stolen Bikes under topic IF your bike is stolen?)

hi ashleigh. did i ask you if you want to receive the monthly prospect bug newsletter. (i coordinate both adelaide bug and prospect bug.) it contains general cycling info, plus state, adelaide and prospect. with the cbd only 6km away, many prospect cyclists ride into the city. the next issue will contain a stolen bike report for daniel. could do the same for you. cheers, heather
Hi Ashleigh, Welcome to Adelaide BUG but sorry about the circumstances. There are previous discussions about stolen bikes and hints on seeking. Recommend that you search on 'stolen' in the box in the top right hand corner of an AC screen. Cheers, Heather
