Police to register bicycles to deter theft

June 30, 1994

As part of their effort to combat bicycle theft, Anne Arundel County police reserve officers will be visiting shopping malls this summer to register bicycles, making them easier to trace and return to their owners if they are stolen.

The service is free. Reserve officers engrave each bicycle with the owner's driver's license number and a county identification number, information that is entered into the Police Department's computer.

* July 2: 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Harundale Mall, Ritchie Highway and Aquahart Road.

* July 9: 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Ranger's Station, B&A Trail/Earleigh Heights; 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., Palisades on the Severn Community Beach.
