Good news for one Bay person who thought his bike was gone for good. Police found it. On 07/16/2015, at 1638 hrs, a resident called BVPD to report his bicycle had been stolen from Walgreen’s. The bike was recovered the following day in the creek by Bay Boat Club. Good reminder to get a Bay Bike Registration at the Police Dept. or Village Bicycle Cooperative. Makes it easier to identify and protect your property.
The mandatory bike registration in Bay Village has been replaced by an optional, free, bike registration, available at both the Village Bicycle Cooperative and at the Bay Village Police Station. The city’s bike registration, which Bay residents are encouraged to use, helps the police department find the owners of recovered bicycles. You will need the serial number, which, on most bicycles, is stamped into the metal on the underside of the frame, between the pedals.
