TAKE STEPS TO AVOID CY­CLE THEFT

Guardian Express - - CRIMEWATCH -

E-bikes and bi­cy­cles in gen­eral are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly tar­geted and stolen. Elec­tric bikes can be ex­pen­sive, sell­ing for up­wards of $2000 to $3000. A com­mon theme is sev­eral thefts oc­cur­ring in the early hours of the morn­ing. Of­ten it is when peo­ple open a garage door to get out their bikes to com­mute. They come back and the bike is gone. We rec­om­mend D-locks, mark­ing and iden­ti­fy­ing the bikes, and mak­ing a note of the se­rial num­bers. Th­ese can be put into na­tional data­bases. - Se­nior Con­sta­ble Mark Matthews
