The biggest crime wave ever recorded in Chico, was reported last week on Saturday night, as the Chico police department finally ended the serial bicycle thefts frequently occuring at apartment complexes, places of employment, college campuses, and private homes, all within the city of Chico, in California.
Late Saturday night during the week of February 12th, a private home dweller suspected that he heard noises emanating from his garage. When he confronted the burglar, the thief fled on foot. He was caught moments later with five high-end bicycles inside of his truck.
