Thieves Targeting Round Rock Motorcycles

Updated: Wednesday, September 18 2013, 08:34 PM CDT

Police in Round Rock say they are seeing an increase in motorcycle thefts.

There have been 12 bikes taken so far this year and nine of them were swiped from apartment complexes, police say.

In 2011, ten motorcycles were stolen in the city of Round Rock. Last year, the city saw fourteen motorcycle thefts.

Experts say most bike thefts happen when the ignition is shut off but not locked.

More tips for preventing motorcycle theft:

- Lock the forks or disk brakes with locks that have large, brightly colored tags.
- Add an audible alarm to your motorcycle. In at least two of the Round Rock thefts this year, the motorcycle stolen did not have an audible alarm.
- Uniquely mark and then photograph your motorcycle. If thieves take your vehicle, note its unique markings to law enforcement using the photos you have taken.
- Keep your registration and insurance identification card on you when you ride.
