Archive for the “Bike Theft” Category

If you live along Apache bordering the light rail line, you may wish to take extra measures in locking up or otherwise securing your bicycle as well as other valuables. I was recently offered a fairly nice bicycle for $100 on one of the light rail platforms as well as some other questionably priced items from questionable looking individuals. I’ve heard of several bike thefts along Apache recently. My thoughts are that criminals are using the light rail route to move stolen goods to other parts of the valley. I’ve emailed these concerns to several Tempe Police officers within the Crime Prevention Unit for beats bordering the light rail. Hopefully they’ll take note of it, but in the meantime here are some entertaining video shorts from NYC Bicycle Habitat’s Hal Ruzal on proper locking technique from streetfilms.org
