Attention Borderstan cyclists:

MPD has in the Property Division close to 19 bikes that have been recovered in the district.  Four were recovered yesterday in the Second District. If your bike was stolen, and you can properly identify it with either a receipt from a sale, or a picture with details along with your crime report, please contact Detective Sgt. John Rucker at the following email address: John.Rucker@dc.gov.

Crime Prevention Tips for Theft of Bicycles

  1. Secure the bike with a lock to a fixed heavy object for additional safety.
  2. Always use a bicycle lock when not in use, even if unattended for just a few minutes.
  3. Ensure the lock is placed through the frame and the wheels.

  1. I found http://www.stolen-property.com/ which appears to be a real good way to report a stolen bicycle or any other stolen property for that matter.

    I used it to not only report a stolen bicycle, but to register all my property with a brand, make, serial number and photos.
