All Those Stolen Citi Bikes Ending Up in Brooklyn?

The NY Post says Brooklyn’s "worst neighborhoods" have become dumping grounds for Citi Bikes — which locals are stealing from docks in "nice neighborhoods" and using as one-way rides home

Cops have discovered more than 67 of the clunky bikes abandoned on streets and sidewalks in East New York, Brownsville and Crown Heights.

Earlier, a correspondent told Gothamist that so many Citi Bikes get stolen "they can't keep up with them!"

According to Citi Bike, "The software that runs the stations and overall system will record exactly when and where each bike is checked out and checked back in, and GPS in each bike will trace its path."

So, no problem, right?
