UNC Police are investigating a series of bicycle and electric bike thefts in recent weeks in the North Campus area and School of Dentistry. In most cases, cable locks have been cut from the bicycle. UNC Police recommend using a U-lock to secure your bike whenever possible. Campus community members can register their bicycles online on the UNC Police website to help in the event the bicycle is stolen or lost.
Anyone with information which might aid in the UNC Police investigation or anyone seeing suspicious activity should call 9-1-1 immediately.

About Crime Alert Messages: The University sends Crime Alerts if there is a continuing danger and notification will not compromise a law enforcement investigation. Informational Messages are one of three tiers of communication under the University’s emergency communications plan and are sent to inform the campus community about a situation that is not an emergency but is expected to be of significant interest to the campus. An Emergency Warning refers to a siren activation for a significant emergency.
