On 08/26/21 at approximately 10:23am, members of the Chico Police
Target Team were on patrol in the Lindo Channel near the
intersection with Cohasset Ln. Officers saw a newer Specialized
Mountain Bike near one of the encampments. All occupants of the
camp claimed not to know who the bicycle belonged to. Officers
checked the serial numbers on the bike and discovered it had been
reported stolen in February of 2021. The bike’s lock had been cut
at the intersection of W. 5th St and Ivy St when it was reported
stolen. The victim had recorded his serial number and completed
an online report. Officers were able to locate the owner and
return his stolen property.
The Chico Police Department would like to remind citizens to keep record of their serialized property. The serial numbers make it much easier to identify and return stolen property.
