Thieves Target Downtown Bikes
Police say at least five locked bikes have been stolen in a small area of downtown near Massachusetts Avenue in the past 10 days. Two of the theft victims lost bikes worth $1,800 to $2,000.
An employee at Bicycle Garage Indy in the downtown Indy Bike Hub said the thieves are targeting high-end bikes. He said the thieves are using cable cutters to defeat the bike locks. He recommended riders who leave their bikes unattended in public places invest in a rigid metal u-lock, which is more secure.
