Unclaimed bicycles pile up in police departments
Wisconsin Rapids Tribune – 9/28/14
Last week, a storage area kept by the Wisconsin Rapids Police Department had 34 bicycles in it. The bikes ranged from old and rusty to shiny and new. Each one was found by officers or turned in to police by someone who found it. The bicycles have something in common, Wisconsin Rapids Police Lt. Brian Krzykowski said. They all have serial numbers that weren’t registered with law enforcement. If the owners had gone through the process of getting a bicycle license for $5, law enforcement agencies would have been able to find the owners.
