Security cameras recorded video of a bike theft in progress at The Shelby, an apartment complex on N. Kings Hwy near Route 1. Fairfax County Police are asking for help in identifying the thieves. See the news release Help Us Solve This Bicycle Larceny copied below the video:

Anyone with information should contact Detective M. Wallace at (703)360-8400 ext. 2249. Callers may remain anonymous.

Help prevent theft; tips from the Washington Area Bicyclist Association:http://www.waba.org/resources/preventing-bicycle-theft/.
FABB is trying to obtain a list of recent bike thefts so we can produce a map to show where thefts are occurring around the county. Police have given us dates of the thefts but not address information even though that information is available from the Daily Police Blotter releases on the Police News site under Larcenies in this format: 6300 block of Millwood Court, bicycle from residence. Police blotter reports prior to September 13, 2014 are compiled online in a slightly different format. If you would like to help extract this information, let us know.
