Since the end of May, 25 pedelecs and 19 bicycle batteries have been stolen – the police are giving advice against theft

Muenster (ots) –

In the last two weeks, residents of Münster have reported 25 pedelec thefts and 19 battery thefts to the Münster police.

Not only this theft high-quality bicycles, but also batteries are attractive to the perpetrators. The new value of the bicycle battery could be over 700 euros. Particularly annoying: Purchasing a replacement is particularly difficult these days due to the existing supply bottlenecks.

In the last few days (June 8 and 9), police officers from Bremer Platz confiscated two allegedly stolen bicycles: an electric bicycle and a mountain bike. The pedelec owner also alerted police early Wednesday morning when the location of her bike revealed that her bike was being moved. During a subsequent Heekweg inspection, she found a VW Sharan that contained both her bike and a stolen mountain bike. There was no trace of the drivers. Deployed policemen have secured the vehicle, and an investigation is ongoing.

In addition to 25 pedelecs, 108 other bicycle thefts were reported in the last two weeks. Perpetrators have different approaches and motivations: Some thieves steal a bike to resell it. Others “only” need a set of wheels on their way home. But organized gangs are also on the move when it comes to stealing bicycles. They usually collect high-quality bikes in small vans, which they take to other cities or abroad for sale. Battery thieves pry or tear the loot from the frame holder so quickly that the theft is barely noticeable even in daylight.

Anyone Can Help Prevent Theft! As a rule, pedelec batteries and on-board computers should be taken with you. Bicycles should always be locked, and even better, tied to permanently installed objects. If it is possible to lock the bike in the garage or basement, use this option.
