Police believe Banker stole a Jamis Ventura bicycle from the bike racks next to the Holland Street entrance at the Davis Square T stop on Sunday Aug. 18. Police also think he was behind another bicycle theft at the same T stop on Aug. 30.

Transit Police posted photographs of their suspect in the larcenies on Sept. 4 before the investigation into the crimes led them to Banker. (via)

Always great to see surveillance video and social media being put to good use. It’s difficult to tell what kind of bicycle was stolen from the photos, but these photos may come in handy for anyone with vigilant Craigslist eyes.

Cambridge Publishes Bike Theft Statistics, Up 54% This Year

Written by Boston Biker on Jul 27

Eric sent me a link to this very interesting pdf

While overall crime is at a 40 year low, bike theft is on the rise in Cambridge, read the full document for more details.

I am going to take this as a sign that bike riding is getting really popular in Cambridge, and also that you need to watch your bike like a hawk when you are in Central Sq.
