  1. I thought it might be a good idea if the parents explain to their children that it is not wise to park your bike right next to a huge dumpster.

      • The thief might claim that he is clearly very stupid so he thought that since it was near a dumpster that somehow means that the bike was being thrown out.
        The dumpster partially blocks the bike from passerby so theifs might not notice it. But if they do notice it they will feel more comfortable stealing since people might not see the robbery.

        • yes and no. yes the “alleged” thief simply might have “assumed” that the bike was garbage and public game. i.e. similar if one were to place the bike on the public street at the curb alongside other OBVIOUS garbe. so again fair game and one can take it as once to the curb garbage then free to the public and not stealing or a theft.

          but no maybe as I simply don’t like the way the again “alleged-only” thief or criminal “looked up at the camera”, this bothers me a bit. me? I would get him ID’d 1st of all and run his name and see any n all criminal history and that should form a good opinion and/or conviction if there is one at all…..

  2. It’s not wise to leave an unattended bike in Lakewood for over an hour! Even a few minutes is taking a risk.
    Unfortunately we’ve had many bikes stolen over the years. Most times they were not locked.
    That’s almost a lifnei iver…
    I hope the kid gets his bike back!
