Stay in the Loop

Informational Alert to 1st Precinct Residents – Bike Thefts

There were 19 bicycles taken last week (6/13 – 6/19/2017) in the Precinct, with most of them being high end bicycles. Although North Loop and the Mills District/Riverfront apartments/condos have the highest reported incidents; the thefts have also been reported throughout the 1st Precinct. In a few of the cases, a suspect has been seen following someone into the parking garage.

In large multi-unit buildings with underground parking, the overhead garage door is the greatest vulnerable access point. Pay attention when entering and exiting the parking area. Access controlled does not mean “secure”. The best security comes from a coordinated effort by all residents to be aware of your surroundings, report suspicious activity and lock up your belongings. Please report all incidents of theft by calling 311(612-673-3000) or online at
