From the MBTA Transit Police Blog:
Transit Police detectives are seeking the identity of the male subject depicted within. If you know the whereabouts or the identity of this individual please contact our Criminal Investigations Unit at 617-222-1050 or (as always) if you wish to assist our investigators but seek to remain anonymous you can simply text your tip to us at 873873
On Monday, May 20, 2013, at approximately 9:45 AM, the male subject depicted below arrived at the Holland Street side of Davis MBTA Station on a bicycle. He was observed loitering near the bicycle racks for approximately 30 minutes, before placing his bicycle next to another bicycle, which he subsequently stole, leaving the original bicycle behind.
Always great to see surveillance video and social media being put to good use. It’s difficult to tell what kind of bicycle was stolen from the photos, but these photos may come in handy for anyone with vigilant Craigslist eyes.

Eric sent me a link to this very interesting pdf
While overall crime is at a 40 year low, bike theft is on the rise in Cambridge, read the full document for more details.
I am going to take this as a sign that bike riding is getting really popular in Cambridge, and also that you need to watch your bike like a hawk when you are in Central Sq.
