Municipal Bike Thieves?

We received a random call today from someone who didn't sound crazy saying that they had seen "the city", cutting the bike chains from bike racks around the Saratoga Springs and taking the bikes.
The Saratoga Springs Police Department said if any city employees had done it it would have been the Department of Public Works.
The desk sergeant said the DPW does cut them just before winter when they are removing the bike racks, but it is pretty warm for that.
Public Works Commissioner Anthony "Skip" Scirocco said no bikes had been taken "to my knowledge."
If anyone has seen or heard anything to the contrary, or noticed any bike thieves in orange reflective vests, give me a call down here.

An odd tale, indeed. If your caller specifically mentioned an "orange vest," it's not our DPW. All the City's vest are the day-glow yellow/green. Go, figure...

My bicycle was stolen from the flagpole in front of the Salvation Army building just yesterday morning. So if you ask yourself is it possible that thieves are working within the city limits, the answer is a most definite yes, from my own perspective. -Joe+
