A lesson to all you would be bike thieves. If you're going to steal a bike nowadays its likely to carry a "Grand Theft" charge.
Also, micro tracking devices are all the rage. They can be hidden within any of the frame tubes and will lead right to your door. If you're lucky, the cops will arrest you. If you're unlucky you'll see what a tire iron feel like.
