EPD looking to return four possibly stolen bikes to owners
EUREKA- The Eureka Police Department is asking the public to identify four possibly stolen bicycles and three sets of bike tires.
The EPD Problem Oriented Policing Unit did a probation search of a Eureka home Thursday afternoon. There, they found four bikes and three sets of bike tires. Detectives suspect they are stolen property, but they will be returned to the residence they were found in if no one identifies them. Police say to follow these tips to help prevent your bike from being stolen.
"We recommend, if possible, to keep your bikes inside or in a locked garage. In the event that you do need to keep it outside, we recommend you lock it to a stable item, possibly using a U-Lock, those are harder to cut. Also, always record your serial numbers for any important object and you can register your bikes for free at the City of Eureka Police Department," said Brittany Powell with the EPD.
Pictures of the bikes can be found by searching “Eureka Police Department” on Facebook. You can call detective Siipola with the EPD at (707) 441-4356 if you recognize any of the property. Authorities ask you to have your serial number and police report number available before calling.
