Just last month 47-year-old Brett Major of San Francisco was caught allegedly in the act of stealing a bike by BART Police. Major was booked at San Francisco County Jail for burglary, theft, possession of burglary tools, and an outstanding warrant from Alameda County. The incident, which took place at the 24th St. Station on May 31st, was one of many which is why BART Police are seeking your help in identifying stolen goods.

When Major’s home was searched, seven bike frames and parts were discovered, pictures of which have been posted on BART’s website.

Had a bicycle stolen recently? BART customers are also encouraged to look for their stolen bikes on a website provided by SFPD’s Ingleside Station, which seized 114 bicycles and posted them online here.

Once the frames and parts are positively identified as stolen, either via case number from a theft report or by showing proof of ownership, such as a serial number or other identifiable marking, they will be returned.

Those who recognize the bicycle parts or bikes are encouraged to call the BART Police Investigations Unit at (510) 464-7040 or email Detective Wendy Sanchez at
