most bikes are stolen from kids that don't ride them, and leave them lying in their yard. My guess is the bikes were taken from the same yard, or close, and when the thieves got to their destination, they ditched them.

I know they don't give the bikes to people who don't report them missing and they'll need a serial number or other identifying marks. And the report needs to be prior to the claim it is their's.

Thanks for all the kind words. The school board did reinstate most of my stipend for this season. They still do not give any support to the program itself, but we are doing fine with grants and donations.
