The Park City Police Department received reports of two separate bicycle thefts over the weekend. They also responded to an unusual alarm call with a Main Street jeweler.

Two mountain bikes were discovered missing from a car port on the 1100 block of Woodside Avenue on Friday morning. Park City Police Department Captain, Phil Kirk says the owner discovered the two bikes missing at 7 am and said they were locked but the cable had been cut. One was a red and black Diamondback Recoil. The second was a gold and black Specialized Crossover.

In a separate incident, a report was filed stating two other bikes were stolen from the 1500 block of Park Avenue. The owner said they were taken off his bike rack which was on his white Toyota Forerunner in a parking garage. Kirk says the locking cable was cut. He says the two incidences could be related but they do not have any leads as of this report.

Park City has a free registration program that can act as a deterrent and it also helps them recover stolen items.

“Yeah, free registration program. Same with our skis and snowboards. We have a free on line registration program. Just get on the city's website and there's a link there that you just fill out the form and then we send you these stickers after you get him registered with us. And you just put those on your bike and that's great way to go. And it doesn't cost anything. We have the stickers on there from the Police Department. We've had very few skis, bikes or snowboards stolen through the program because it's a good deterrent. Besides helping us to recover stolen property, and thieves that see those stickers on the bike registered to the Police Department, usually think twice about stealing those types of items.”

Park City Jewelers General Manager, Lex Harrison says a window was smashed early Saturday morning at their store located at 420 Main Street. He says they have lights, cameras and video, and he says no one entered the store. The merchandise in the window was taken and they’re still working with their insurance company and the police department. Harrison says they have pictures identifying the culprit. 
Kirk says the police responded within minutes to the alarm that was triggered early Saturday morning.

Both Kirk and Harrison say this type of a crime is unusual for Park City.
