Police Auction Off Bicycles Found in Capital Region

Approximately 80 bicycles will be auctioned off at the lost-and-found department of the Capital Region Police on Saturday. The bicycles have been found throughout the capital region and no one has bothered to collect them.

Last year around 700 bicycles were reported stolen in the capital region. It is unclear what happened to the majority of these bicycles but 180 of them ended up in the police’s lost-and-found department, mbl.is reports.

It is common for bicycles to be brought there a few months after they are stolen, so it isn’t enough for owners to come to the police station immediately after the theft.

Police recommend that people keep their bicycles in as safe a place as possible and to never leave them unlocked. If the bicycle is stolen, it comes in handy to know its serial number, which makes it easier to identify the bike and return it to its rightful owner.

The bicycle auction will take place outside Askalind 2a in Kópavogur on Saturday, June 5, at 11 am.
