CU-Boulder police: eBay listing leads to arrest of serial bike thief

From the Daily Camera

A transient with a history of theft was arrested last week after an eBay listing of the bicycle he is accused of stealing was seen by the owner, according to University of Colorado police.

According to police, Wayne Willet Cron, 40, cut a cable lock on a brand-new $3,000 Cannondale mountain bike near the Ekeley Sciences Building on the Boulder campus on Jan. 17.

In March, the owner of the bike saw a YouTube video on an eBay listing that matched his bike. The video briefly showed part of the bike's serial number, which police were able to match to the stolen bike.
