The defendant was arrested and charged with “Theft-1 Bike”. Recovered was the crow-bar/pipe, the stolen bike and a damaged Kryptonite bike lock.

Prevention Tip of the Day: Never leave you Bicycle unattended, even for a second. This is all it take for an assailant to made away with your property. Always lock your bicycle when leaving it unattended. The best locking mechanism to prevent a bike theft is a heavy gauge U lock, although any lock is better than none.”

In the first incident, officers observed a suspect in the vicinity of the 1200 block of S Street, N.W. This suspect was riding a bicycle and carrying a box believed to be stolen. An investigation revealed that the recovered items were, in fact, stolen and the suspect was arrested and the property recovered.

In the second instance, a suspect was observed in the vicinity of the 1600 block of Florida Avenue, N.W. carrying two large packages believed to be stolen. When approached by officers, the suspect admitted to stealing the packages and was placed under arrest.
