WARN­ING AF­TER SPATE OF BIKE THEFTS

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

“We have had a spike in thefts of ex­pen­sive bikes re­cently with about 80 in the Perth po­lice sub-district in the past 60 days alone. Thieves use bolt cut­ters to cut locks, and are even en­ter­ing un­der­ground garages to take the bikes. We suspect they are sell­ing them on sec­ond­hand web­sites such as Gumtree. All bicycle own­ers should put some type of iden­ti­fi­ca­tion on the bikes, such as a driver’s li­cence num­ber. If you can, take your bicycle up to your apart­ment and store it in­side. Al­ways use high qual­ity locks wher­ever you keep or take your bike, be­cause the thieves usu­ally first tar­get poor locks.” - Se­nior Sergeant Craig Davis
