Topic: Stolen Bikes - Let the community help you look out.

I think having 3 other officers standing there watching another one washing their patrol car is a waste of resources. And I witness this myself.

Of course the whole police force doesnt work for me (one person). And I dont expect them to. But when collectively there are many reports of stolen bikes or other properties in one area, shouldnt sometihing be done, like more patrols, finding out where stolen bikes are offloaded etc.

As a police officer, they dont just chase crooks that happen to be running in front of them right. Some investigative work is required isnt it?

What kind of leads do we need to provide? We make 2 reports for 3 bikes stolen. They did not even come to dust for prints or whatever it is that they do.

After that we had CCTV installed, some joker came and stole other stuff. We gave them the footage and the officer was laughing when he saw it, and said he will keep it, but also wont take any action.

What kind of expectations need to be aligned? I have accepted right from the beginning the bikes are lost (3 bikes). I dont expect to recover them. And I receive a letter after 4 months telling me all leads exhausted. I have to say my expectations are perfectly aligned.

Hi fellow bikers,

I have an experience to share with u all who had the ir bikes stolen but can't do anything abt it.

I made two police reports and obviouly they can't do much. They told me that the owner of the bicycle who can recognise stolen bicylce to look for it.
If owner can find , he/she can either cut the lock or call the locksmith to unlock the stolen bike.

I then put up some ads near the place where it was stolen and also along mrt lines.

Guess what? After two months, one biker who was living in Jur Point called and informed me tha he saw my stolen bike at Aljunied MRT station area. But he can't be 100% sure if that's the stolen bike, it looks very similar to the stolen in the poster I put up.


Hope all of you whose bike was stolen can find back their bike thru the community here. We can't depend too much on the authroities here. Their help is limited. Manpower low.

While playing my video on double racking @ Lakeside Mrt today ,
chance upon a video of a "bicycle thief" at Lakeside Mrt:
 http://youtu.be/uCCOqSQeads
wonder if he's the one whole stole my bike?

LakeSide MRT new bicycle rack prevent theft?
With the implementation of double rack at Lakeside Mrt,
think the theft rate should be lower as its not easy to
take down the bike from the upper rack without "feeling guilty".

my two cents worth.

Brothers and Sister and Bike,



Is your FASTRACK road bike stolen? I spotted when a lorry stopped beside me along admiralty west loaded with this beautiful like new fastrack bike. I don't think these workers want to waste their hard earned money to buy this expensive bike. I have the lorry details just in case...

Looks more like exhausted washing their car?
