TEMPE, AZ - Police are warning students to double lock their bicycles because bike thefts typically rise in September.
ASU students return to school this week and many use bicycles to get around campus. Police say it's important to take precautions.
Students are advised to use two locks. Police say a U-lock should go through the rear wheel and frame. A cable lock should wrap through both the front and rear tires, the frame, and onto the bike stand.
Police also advise students to register their bikes to make them easier to track if stolen.
Students should report suspicious behavior to campus police. ASU police say suspicious behavior may be someone who is riding around the bike racks but doesn't take an open spot or someone who is carrying a wire cutter.
