The most interesting part of the story to me is that he refused to tell the cops where the bikes went. Is it a bigger, organized ring? Seems like he couldn't just craigslist or pawn them locally very easily.

He should also get 1 year per dollar of the total value IMO.

copy from the article on 9news.com
--------------------------
BOULDER - A man who stole more than 40 bikes in the Boulder area, including the University of Colorado campus, will be spending 10 years in state prison.

John Samson III was arrested March 20, 2014. He was convicted of stealing 45 bikes with an aggregate value of $100,000.

Police say Samson refused to tell them what he did with the stolen bikes.

Samson will be eligible for parole in 2019.

He looks like a winner.

No kidding. That feels like he was a small component of a larger operation and didn't want to sell out his buddies.

Also he didn't get 10 years, he got 4 years in prison, because they let anyone with a pulse out on parole and he's eligible in 2019.

Hope that someone will ride him really hard so he will start burping and his rim gets cracked.

Nothing quite sums up the word 'hatred' quite like my feeling for bike thieves... Fuck this guy.

They take their bikes seriously in Boulder! Never steal from a DH biker son!
