Dozens of bikes stolen on ASU campus in the past two weeks

Posted: Updated:
TEMPE, Ariz. -

ASU students – beware. Thieves are nabbing up bikes in and around campus. Classes at ASU started just last week and already police say 25 students have had their bikes ripped off.

Brian Dashner, a freshman at ASU, says besides the worry of starting college, hundreds of miles from home, he's now worried that his only set of wheels could be stolen.

"It's kind of concerning, every time I walk by I look to make sure my bike is still there," says Dashner.

In just the few short days since classes have been in session at Arizona State University, campus police have received around 25 stolen bike reports.

"Bicycle thefts happen quite a bit," says Sgt. Daniel Macias, ASU Police. "Things we encourage students to do when they're parking their bike on campus is to make sure they're locked."

ASU Police say the owner of this bike really has the right idea -- as you can see they've got the U-lock as well as this cable lock. That's two deterrents for a potential thief.

Students are now heeding the warning and locking up their bike whenever -- wherever they are. They say U-locks are the best.

"I can't lose this I don't have a car I'm from New Jersey so this is all I have right now," says Dashner.

ASU Police are also urging students to register their bikes with police just in case something happens.
