The Maplewood Police Department had several reported bicycle thefts reported last month. Some of these thefts were unsecured bicycles, but many were of bicycles that had been locked up by their owners. It appears that the majority of these locks that were defeated by the thieves were the cable lock style. Although the Maplewood Police Department does not endorse a specific style or brand, below is a link to an article on bicycle locks. We hope that this will help assist bicycle owners in choosing a more secure option for their bicycles and reduce instances of bicycle thefts. Specific questions or advice on bicycle locks should be referred to your local bicycle shop.
