Police in Tseung Kwan O have solved a three-week-old bicycle theft, arresting two men and recovering one of three stolen bikes.
On 30 August, a 77-year-old man reported the theft of three bikes and a bicycle chain, worth $30, from the bicycle parking at 11A-11F Choi Ming Street. Police say they launched an “in-depth” investigation and soon identified two suspects.
On 23 September, just three weeks after the initial report, officers swooped in and arrested two people, a 76-year-old surnamed Liu and a 75-year-old surnamed Shi, at the same address as the theft report. One of the stolen bicycles was recovered.
Police reiterated that theft is a serious crime, while urging cyclists to park their bikes legally, to use a firm lock, not to leave bicycles on the streets and not to park bicycles in dark places.
