Yesterday we reported that Arlington police are warning residents about bike thefts. Now we’re hearing that nearly 30 bikes were stolen from a bike rack inside a locked apartment building garage in Rosslyn last weekend.
Building management for the Rosslyn Heights complex at 1860 North Scott Street confirmed the thefts, but could not confirm the number of bikes that were stolen. A resident who contacted ARLnow.com said about 30 bikes, all locked either to each other or to the bike rack, were stolen.
The resident, Ben M., said this was the latest in a series of break-ins in the area since the end of September.
He said he’s surprised by how little has been done to prevent the thefts.
Update at 1:30 p.m. — A police source says the number of bikes stolen from the complex may be significantly lower that 30.
