Atlanta police issued a warning to Inman Park residents about a number of bicycle thefts that have occurred in the neighborhood.
Four bicycles were stolen from residences on Hurt Street and Lake Avenue in the last two weeks, Atlanta Police Lt. D. Brent Schierbaum told residents of the Inman Park Neighborhood Association Wednesday night at its October meeting.
In one of the incidents, the bike was the sole target of a home burglary, he said.
All the thefts occurred in the daytime.
As a rule, it's a good idea to write down the serial numbers of bicycles so police have a some way to tracethem back to victims should they get stolen, Schierbaum said.
