Clubbers bust up bike theft ring
POSTED: 9/15/12 1:33 PM

Last week DCTriers Debbie Hopkins and Trevor Albert broke up a major bike theft ring. When Debbie had her bike stolen, he contacted Trevor, and together they scoured everywhere online and elsewhere they might find the bike. They ID'd the thief, but he sold it to another robber before they could pounce. Then, with the help of police, they nailed the guy, with Debbie in on the bust. The thief in turn led Montgomery County police to another man who ran a major bike theft ring. They nailed him. Apparently dozens of bikes were recovered, including Debbie's.

Meantime Trevor in one month has done IM NY, survived two serious bike accidents mostly unscathed, and busted a bike ring. (MGM may ask him to star in the next Superman sequel.)

Hooray for another citizen's arrest! McGruff would be proud... crime doesn't pay!

One more thing to add to Ed's list: Trevor drinks an insane amount of chocolate milk... he typically goes through about 2 gallons a week!

A great story of the value of being a DC Tri Club member...you instantly gain 1300 friends who've "got your back".

If Trevor or Debbie get around to posting it, the entire story with details is pretty amazing.
