2) On today’s date [Saturday], at approximately 21:00 hours, 3-D VICE Sgt. Arthur Gregory intervened on a “Theft-1 Stolen Bike” in progress. Another adult male defendant was attempted to break a bicycle from a bike lock when Sgt. Gregory interrupted him. The Defendant attempted to flee on foot while armed with a crow-bar pipe, but after a brief foot pursuit, Sgt. Gregory apprehended the defendant without incident. 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.”
