KENTFIELD, Calif. (AP) — Marin County Sheriff's officials have recovered more than 130 bikes and frames and arrested a woman in connection with what they say was a major bike theft ring.
Forty-eight-year-old Rebecca Hammett, of Kentfield, was arrested and booked into county jail on Tuesday on suspicion of receiving known stolen property. Sheriff's Lt. Jamie Scardina tells the Marin Independent Journal Hammett is suspected of buying stolen bicycles from thieves.
Investigators recovered the bikes and frames after serving search warrants at a home in Kentfield, a storage facility in Greenbrae and a motorhome in Corte Madera.
Scardina says dozens of high end mountain bikes and road bikes were among those recovered. Investigators are now trying to match the bikes to their owners.
