Purple Trek hybrid bike with 2 metal rear baskets.

Thieves cut a lock on a Lamartine St. backyard shed this morning (8/31/14) and stole a bike. Another shed was also broken into on nearby Chestnut Square this morning and five bikes were stolen. Please be on the look-out for bike thieves and “hot” bikes being sold on the market.

    Thanks so much for posting, this Marilyn. I went through the police blotter and found at least nine separate incidents of stolen bikes! http://bit.ly/1plOOqg

    My wife and I had two bikes stolen from JP early this morning sometime. They cut the locks and took a Trek Mountain Bike and a Raleigh Mountain Bike.

      Ugh. Sorry. I’m getting nervous every time I chain and U-lock my bike these days…

          well, they didn’t steal my daughters…they stole my daughter’s bike.

            Our stolen bike was a woman’s blue Trek.

    At about 1130 this morning, a man came to my door, saying he is with National Grid, he had the orange vest and he had an id lanyard around his neck – it looked like him but??? and needs to check in the basement for gas leaks. I called my landlady and she came and took care of the situation. I went back into my apartment. About an hour later I went downstairs to find the front door was wide open. When my neighbor came home, he asked me if I had seen his bike. No.
    So, the situation is: National Grid came to check for gas leaks, he left, the bike was gone. Not accusing anyone, but, National Grid is totally unhelpful to us, they cannot say whether or when their service people arrive to service our gas meters.
    HENCE, PLEASE BE AWARE WHO IS AT YOUR DOOR AND CALL THE COMPANY IF YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THIS PERSON IS WHO REALLY WHO HE SAYS HE IS. OR MAYBE JUST SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T CLOSE DOORS OF PEOPLES HOUSE?
    If this person reads this, I would love to talk about the situation. Thanks for the read.

    The bottom line is my neighbor has lost his bike and he is posting this separately.
