Where do craigslist sellers get their bikes from? (Police auction?)

I was on Craigslist and I put in $50-$100 and I noticed bikes from the same seller came up. I asked him why he had so many bikes for sale and he said he got them from a police auction. I looked at some other ads and noticed that if they have the same backdrop they are from the same seller. Where are they getting their bikes from?

So you found one dude that is cheap and gets them any way they can to flip. There's your sign.

Didn't you just answer your own question? Do you not believe he got them from a police auction?

If it's the same seller doing it for a long time, most likely it's legit.
