CHICO, Calif. – Chico State bike theft is rising as students return to campus this semester.

University Sergeant Joe Deal says approximately 20 bike thefts occurred the first week and 10 occurred the first day back.

He says that all students should secure their bikes with a hardened “U” lock through the wheel, rack, and frame.

The University Police also suggests all students register their bike, check on it often, and move it from time to time.

Oscar Tirado Rodriguez, a sophomore at Chico State, says he had his bike stolen from work his freshman year. He had two locks on his bike.

University Police say they have already stopped two theft attempts in process with their security camera system.

It was nice to receive some rain and mountain snow around northern California late Sunday and early Monday. Thankfully a change to our overall weather pattern is underway, and many more chances of rain are coming!
