It's pretty obvious that our current justice system is not working for this man. Isn't it time one of his hands is cut off?!?

Jersey City man with 29 prior arrests charged with string of bike thefts

By Jonathan Lin | The Jersey Journal The Jersey Journal 
March 02, 2015 at  5:51 PM

JERSEY CITY -- A Jersey City man with 29 prior arrests has been accused of committing a string of bicycle thefts.

Milton S. Nesbitt, who made his first appearance in Central Judicial Processing in Jersey City today via video link from the Hudson County jail in Kearny, has been charged with carrying out the thefts over the past year.

Sometime after October last year, Nesbitt used bolt cutters to steal two bicycles -- a Vita Elite Women's bike worth $829.99 and a Sirrus Comp worth $999.99 -- from a parking garage on Warren Street, according to a criminal complaint and police report.

Truth: anything secured with a cable lock, even if it's a cheap Walmart bike, could be gone in a flash.

If it's an orange or other bright-colored Walmart bike, secured with a cable lock, expect it to be gone in half a flash.

Even if you have a cheap, crappy bike, if you hope to lock it up outdoors and not have it stolen, you'll need to invest in at least two locks: a decent U-lock, to lock the frame to an immovable object; and a cable (or ideally chain), to secure the wheels to the frame/immoveable object.

If you have a cool/sexy/expensive bike, don't ever leave it unattended... even the most robust locks fall to determined thieves with the the proper tools and a couple minutes to work with.

Type of lock? Just shows they're not cherry picking, this was a lower end bike, the type that I ride around town, and would have thought less of a target than the $500+ bikes some people lock up at Grove.

so I guess there's a bunch of bike thieves in JC. a 60 year old guy, a white homeless man in his 30's and a dark skinned teenager wearing a hoodie (the one who stole my bike).

Homeless man charged in bike theft string in Jersey City, Hoboken: P.A. cops

A homeless man was nabbed by Port Authority police yesterday in Jersey City and charged in a string of bicycle thefts, police said.

Edward Feuchack, whose address is listed as the Hoboken Shelter at 300 Bloomfield Ave., was arrested at the Journal Square Transportation Center at around 4 p.m. after police saw him carrying a bicycle tire, according to Joe Pentangelo, a spokesman for the Port Authority Police Department.

Feuchack, 34, was charged with theft of movable property, receiving stolen property, drug possession and possession of burglars tools, Pentangelo said.

Plain clothes officers spotted Feuchack on the plaza level of of the transportation hub with the tire and noticed he matched a description of a person who carried out multiple bicycle thefts, the spokesman noted.

FYI... Caught a white male in his 60s stealing an older looking bike (not mine) while walking my 3yr old to pre-K this morning. He was wearing a grey zip-up hoodie and using a handheld circular saw near the corner of Warren and York. There's a service entrance (locked) to the apartment complex there that he was attempting to use the doorway nook as cover. He saw that I had stopped to look at him and took off with the bike and his toolbag. Wasn't about to start playing vigilante with my child as my sidekick so I called JCPD and filed a report. They said they'd patrol the area and keep an eye out.

An idea would be to make your bike less desirable - I've seen bikes with tape all over the manufacturers logos and even some with their frame spray painted to do the same.

I often think that these ass-wipes stealing bikes have no clue about bikes, but simply target brand names.

Is it possible to buy a bike without the manufacturers logos and can those logos be purchased separately, for when you later want to sell it ?

This. EXACTLY. Cable locks are next to useless. They are normally easier to pick, and the cables themselves are super easy to cut with any decent bolt cutter.

As for people walking by and not saying or doing anything, don't be too quick to judge them. Sometimes, people may see something and not realize they are witnessing a crime in progress. Most people (perhaps naively) assume that the person fussing with the lock is an owner whose keys are not working well, or he is otherwise having problems trying to unlock the chain.

Ready to have your mind blown? Watch as Casey Neistat "steals" a bunch of bikes ALL OVER the city without nary an issue: Bike Thief 2012. It's a pretty funny video, given how over the top is the whole premise.

Security footage shows a Latino man about 5'8" and in his mid 20's opening up a backpack, getting out tools, and spending about 10 minutes hacking away at the lock.

The most disappointing part of the footage is that it also shows at least a dozen people walking right by, looking at him, and not doing anything. The best thing we can do to prevent this sort of theft is to look out for our neighbors. If nothing else, just make a phone call to the police.

I hate hearing stories like these especially when you did everything right. Was the lock still there ? This scum went out of his way to cut that lock he had some pair of... any owner could have come outside and catch him in the act. I home you filled out the registration form with the lock company and registered it with the police dept ?

On Monday I saw an OnGuard cable lock that was cut and still wrapped around a parking sign out front of the gym on Erie St by Smith & Chang. Could be possible that it's the same guy.

thank for this info. I have been using now discontinued gamin gtu in my car as lo-jack device.

http://www.cnet.com/products/garmin-gtu-10/

I had used it on my road bike in the past by storing it in a small tool bag under the saddle. The problem with these devices is the battery life and need for clear GPS signal. Works pretty good in cars if you hard wire it but once bike is indoors and battery is dead game over.

I would think the biggest problem is keeping it perpetually powered, a solar cell would be a giveaway, no? Otherwise, you'd need to change or charge batteries all the time like it was a cell phone.

Re the sting article: Sorry, but locking up a $1500 bike on the street is stupid. That's what cheapo beater "city bikes" are for. My 15 year old Costco bike has rarely been harassed while locked up anywhere in town. I'm sure riding a great bike on trail or long road runs is wonderful, but I can't see it's worth it for banging around town.

If the number of bikes for sale on Jersey and Newark(around 20) this weekend is any indicator, Grove St bikes might have a new bike shop to compete with.
Great deals too. $20-50 and most of them had a nice new coat of paint!

A 39-year-old Jersey City man was arrested and charged with stealing a girl's bike from a Bayonne backyard on Saturday, according to police.

Israel David Santiago was arrested by police at around 6:30 a.m. after cops spotted him riding a girl's bike while carrying another bike over his shoulder, police said, adding that Santiago was swerving in and out of traffic as he struggled to carry the second bike.

Santiago, a Bramhall Avenue resident, was charged with theft, possession of burglary tools, criminal trespass and hindering apprehension, according to police.

When Santiago was questioned by police, he first claimed that he was on his way to work and gave three different locations for his place of employment. Officers then checked the business where Santiago claimed he worked and found he did not work there, authorities said.

Santiago also did not tell officers his full name when he was first questioned, police said.

The Jersey City man finally told police his full name and admitted that he stole the bicycles in the area of West 20th Street. He added that he was planning on selling them in Jersey City, according to police.

The girl's bike that Santiago was riding was later discovered to be stolen from a backyard on 40th Street, police said.

While searching Santiago, police said they found a pair of cutting pliers.

Santiago is being held on $10,000 bail, with a 10-percent option. He was transported to the Hudson County Jail.

My Blue-black Diamondback Sorrento got stolen today from outside Gulls Cove, 201 Marin Bvld around 3-4pm. It was tied to a lamppost with an Avenir cable lock and the perp managed to cut super neatly through the cable. Makes me wonder what kind of plier is he carrying...

Funny thing, my wife's Schwinn Discover bike was chained to the same post with a similar Avenir cable lock and the thief didnt take that...so probably the guy was working alone.

Went down to the East district police station and filed a complaint.

Just need to chime in and vent a little. Let's see - a block away from Hamilton Park (right by JCPD east), two thefts a few months apart. First - women's hybrid, stolen lock and all, Kryptoflex type flex cable lock (I know, never again), and next, had a back(!) wheel stolen from an otherwise locked up bike with U-lock. Locked up the bike around midnight, was stolen by 8. Amusingly, I walked outside to see the wheel stolen the same morning PSEG was doing some work on my block, so there were 2 cops right in front of me as I discovered this.

I'm sure GSB runs an honest operation. No one has ccused them of fencing stolen property. Just in case whatever circumstance caused the appearance of his bike may recur, I would browse there. Rodney certainly deserves any benefit of doubt. Hope that's clear.

Jumba72, that's the 2nd time you've mentioned your "friend" finding their stolen bike at GSB. I don't know if you're intending it, but you are making it sound like GSB would sell stolen bikes. I know Rodney and they would never do that. They only sell new bikes. They accept used bikes and donate them to charity (can't remember the name).
Maybe someone bought the stolen bike on the street from some thief and then brought it into GSB to have it fixed or tuned-up and your friend saw it when it was there for work?

We really need clarification from your friend about what happened.

Take a ride up to St Lucys shelter and check out the unlocked bikes leaning on the fence. Just be careful. Nobody is going to let you "steal" a bike that they have already "boosted".
