While writing about the Baltimore-Annapolis Hiker-Biker Trail, I mentioned that it had been extended to the Linthicum light rail station and that bikers could use the train to continue their journey.

Apparently, not all the people with bikes on light rail are legitimate.

One of our neighbors wrote me a letter about a series of bike thefts in Linthicum in which thieves used light rail to haul away the stolen bikes.

The thieves have been caught, but our neighbor is worried about letting bikers use the train because the bikes might be stolen.

We're all concerned about the problem, but not allowing bikers to use light rail would penalize the wrong people.

Let's hope our police department can continue to catch those who would ruin what is a treat for many.
