anyone have any REAL stats on how many bikes are stolen in a month, six month, year time frame in Houston?

Maybe we need to request an audience with the mayor and police chief to see how this issue is being addressed? Seriously...

Those of you who live in apartments, lock your disc and lock it to a solid pole. I get annoyed locking and unlocking my bike all the time but you get used to it after a while.

Since you are a police officer I would figure that you'd want as much assistance as possible in locating a stolen vehicle.
Although not perfect, Lojack is a good recovery tool.
Lo-jack is cool and it works really well, I've recovered a lot of vehicles no bikes yet though. But I have recovered four stolen bikes, all while still mobile. They all ended crashing and one guy died. Usually bike thieves will try to run and end up wrecking the bike.

My recovery rate is 100% (in jest) but all the bikes were useless to the owner and I had to deal with a dead guy because I chose to chase him. If police recover the bike while it is stationary its a totally different story. We recover the bike, try to find a suspect, and contact the owner. No problems.

But in my limited view of things recovering the bike with the still riding it usually results in a lose - lose situation. I would encourage anyone to get a lo-jack because they work good. But don't expect a thief to simply give up your bike if the police catch him on it.

i had parts stolen off my raven twice... but you take the cake... sorry about your loss man. I live in SL too ill keep an eye out. But i doubt its going to turn up around the SL. Since you live in the apartments you should def get an alarm and tie it around a tree or something.

To everyone else that lives in the area watch out... cops profile us harder than ever already just try to stay away... I get pulled over for everything i got like 3 dirty licence plate tickets.

anyway my thought is that if there are people theiving in the general around hwy6 area, and a lot of members here are from sugar land. Be cautious of what you say on these msg boards. They could easily pick up bits and peices of information. Be extremely careful purchasing things from the forsale thread, you never know whos reading it. Keep addresses and and any information you don't want a theif to see in pms. Be careful of stating the street, area or appartment you live in. I don't have an alarm but i sure as am thinking about it.

all you need is a name....first and last and you can find out where they live......i to feel that it is someone you know....did you know you can call 411 and ask for reverse info about a name and number...i.e. street address.

also very easy here....go ahead type in your last name.........

www.hcad.org click record search,real property,owner name
bam...there it is this site is only for harris county, but all countys have it,brazoria,galveston ect.

KEEP IT IN THE P.M. OR YOUR NEXT.....ANYONE CAN FIND YOU
