2 arrested in bike thefts on ASU campus

TEMPE, Ariz. -

Students headed back to school at Arizona State University 12 days ago. Since then, 17 bikes have been stolen on campus. But ASU police have taken in two of the suspected thieves.

Dorion Grant is the man ASU police arrested Monday for stealing at least one student's bike.

"He was not a student, he was not affiliated with the campus in any way he was just here to steal a bike basically," said ASU Police Sgt. Daniel Macias.

Sgt. Daniel Macias says they've caught that same man stealing in the past. And Tuesday, around 10 a.m., they took in another bike theft suspect -- Maurice White.

Senior Sandra Londono is now riding the 3rd bike she's had to buy in 4 years at ASU because the first two were stolen.

"One was like 3 years ago and the other maybe a year ago," said Londono.

Students like Brett Tourtillotte understand that these bike racks are appealing to thieves. He locks it up no matter what.

"Just locking it up every single time. Even if I go inside for five minutes it's a hassle, but it's better than having no bike," he said.

While it is encouraging, police say they can't be everywhere at once so they're encouraging students to use the u-lock and cable lock to secure their ride.

"It's pretty difficult. We have 165 bike racks on campus. At any given time we have between 10,000 and 12,000 bikes on campus," said Sgt. Macias.

In addition to using locks, Londono says she no longer buys the best looking bikes.

"I actually make it look like this so it doesn't look appealing to them."

Officers encourage all students to register their bikes with the police department here: https://cfo.asu.edu/bike-theft

    Boaters in Lake Hopatcong in New Jersey are keeping an eye out for an unwanted visitor lurking underwater: a 14- or 15-foot-ong snake, possibly a green anaconda. Several people have seen the reptile, which has probably holed up in a drain pipe. Reptile specialists are also searching the lake for signs of the snake. So far no more sightings have been reported.
