VicPD says it’s investigating a suspected bike ‘chop-shop,’ discovered in Beacon Hill Park on Tuesday (July 14).
Tips from the public pointed police to a secluded area in the park just after 9 a.m., where officers located a large number of bicycles in varying states, bicycle parts and other property including power tools, industrial torches and propane tanks.
VicPD recommends recording your bike’s serial number and reporting it to police if it’s stolen. Police often locate bikes that are abandoned or likely stolen but are challenged to return them if the bikes have never been reported lost or stolen.
