Bike thefts on the rise from Tahoe area

Bike thefts are on the rise in the Tahoe area. The Truckee Police Department is warning high-end mountain bikes are most at risk. They say many of the bikes are being stolen from unattended, unlocked vehicles. In other instances, police say thieves are even cutting cables on bike locks being kept on public racks. They say if you have an expensive mountain bike, you’re urged to write down the serial number-it’s the only way to track it back to its owner.
