*This can happen anywhere!!!*
There have been six bicycles stolen from Cometland (104 Precinct) since 5/18, from five different locations.* In at least 4 of these instances,* *the bicycles were unattended and not secured/chained to prevent theft.*
5/18: Black/Red Pure Fix bike, front of 69-00 block of Grand Avenue (daytime)
5/24: Black Pure Fix bike, front of 53-00 63 St (midnight)
5/24: Blue Trek bike, rear of 53-00 63 St (morning, unsecured in a backyard)
5/25: Black bike and Red bike, rear of 52-00 72 St (midday, 1 unsecured from backyard and 1 unsecured from common hallway)
5/27: Best Choice white bike, front of 53-00 72 St (overnight, unsecured in front yard)
Please pass along to the neighborhood that there are two sure fire ways to prevent bicycle theft: keep it out of sight (take it inside your home if you can), or if that is not an option, secure it with a heavy duty chain in a location that is not accessible to others.
Thanks and be safe.
