SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)--San Francisco residents searching for their stolen bike could be  in luck.
Police announced Friday they have posted photos online of more than  100 stolen bicycles recovered earlier this month from a San Francisco man who  allegedly had them stored in his home in the city's Silver Terrace  neighborhood as well as in two storage lockers in Oakland.
The stash of bicycles was discovered after investigators from the  Ingleside Police Station were led to the home of Irving Sanchez, 18, in the  200 block of Charter Oak Avenue, police said.
Investigators discovered eight stolen bicycles in the kitchen, and  also found evidence that led them to two self-service storage lockers in the  5200 block of Coliseum Way in Oakland.
After obtaining a search warrant on May 15, police found 25  bicycles in one of the storage units and 81 in the other, as well as 80  bicycle tires and a frame.
Sanchez was arrested on May 17 and charged with numerous felony  counts of receiving stolen property, police said.
The Ingleside Station has posted photos of all of the recovered  bicycles on their website. Victims who identify their bicycle must provide  either a case number from a theft report or proof that the bicycle belongs to  them, police said.
Photos of the bicycles can be found at!--bike-recovery.
