Bike thefts at GW

This just in from GW Police:
 
CRIME ALERT: Bicycle Thefts

The George Washington Police Department (GWPD) is investigating an increase in
the number of bicycle thefts on campus. Bicycles that have been locked also are
being reported as stolen. Thefts are occurring during the afternoon and evening
even with pedestrians in the area. 

GWPD encourages all bicycle owners to use heavy U-Lock devices securely fastened
to the frame of the bike and the rack that typically deter thieves.  

If you observe suspicious persons or activities near bike racks, for example
someone carrying bolt cutters or hack saws, please report information to GWPD at
202-994-6111 or anonymously at 202-994-TIPS.
