There is a known bike theft ring at 1324 SE 14th Ave. Portland, OR where several people have recovered their stolen bicycles and motorized scooters that were sitting out front. Some were stolen from apartment building secured bike rooms where anti-theft devices such as cable locks and u-locks were defeated.
The neighbors and Portland Police Bureau are fully aware of the theft ring. The Portland Police bike theft task force was out to the location in July 2020 due to an unrelated incident and recovered only the bikes that were reported as stolen through Bike Index or Project529.org but were unable to recover the bikes that were NOT reported. There are about 40 bikes in the multi-unit building and there are posters around the neighborhood about the known location. Do NOT confront the residents as they are dangerous
Be sure to register your serial number at Bikeindex.com, carry renters insurance or buy a Kryptonite lock then pay the additional $10 for the insurance the same day as the purchase if it is defeated.
