So first off I should mention we live by USC, pretty much the super sketchy ghetto near downtown LA.
so Abe (abek) and I were walking to his apartment the other night and as we're passing the parking garage we see this really sketchy guy shaking bikes on the bike rack totally checking to see if they're locked or not.
he was so NOT smooth about the whole thing. on the way back down the elevator like 15 mins later we thought we'd intimidate him (carrying a guitar hero guitar and 2 boogie boards) by letting him know someone was watching him if he was still messin w/ peoples stuff. He wasn't there but soon as we got outside we saw this old sketchy tinted windowed Explorer right out front. That guy and the driver were loading bikes into the back haha. not obvious at all!
so anyway, we called the cops and just drove around and shortly after they caught them a few blocks away and we drove past and there were at least 6 or 7 cop cars surrounding the Explorer. people were pinned down on cars, lights flashing, it was great. After circling 4 times i decided i didn't want one of their gang bang friends to see my car and hunt me down, so we called it quits on our crime bust.
moral--if you're going to steal don't be an idiot about it.
