Bicycle Thefts

June 2015

Police warn that bicycle thefts are typically on the rise during this time of the year.

Avoid being a target for bicycle thieves.

  • Register bicycles with the police. If stolen and recovered by the police they know who to contact rather than relegating bicycles to unclaimed property and auctioned off.
  • Invest in a quality lock. Use a second lock to chain up the frame of the bicycle to something sturdy, as thieves sometimes steal the frame and leave a locked wheel behind.

If your bicycle is stolen, @FindMyBikeGTA is a social media network on Twitter that posts information about stolen bicycles in Toronto.
