♦ Next to stealing cars and trucks, bicycles are right up there as prized objects for thieves.  Bikes are an easy conveyance across town before they’re ditched in the woods or left against a weed shrouded “no parking” sign.  An expensive racing bike can be traded quick for a crack rock or a few lucky bucks.  Sometimes shorty bikes can become mobile drug dealing vehicles for young “bag runners”.

Fulton Heights continues to be hammered by “metals men”, strong arm robbers, break-in artists, and bike thieves.  Never a dull moment come nightfall.  A lot of empty houses as people are moving out.

According to Salisbury Police sources Christopher Shelton, 40, living at 410 Mitchell Avenue in Fulton heights was the victim of a “larceny-bicycle” on Wednesday when thieves grabbed 2 children’s bikes valued at $255 and a man’s Raleigh bicycle valued at $450.  Toss in 2 locks worth $50.  The total take was $775.
