The Office of Safety and Security is continuing to work with the Brunswick Police Department (BPD) to investigate the spate of recent bike thefts.

Security is also working with the BPD in relation to pressing charges of attempted theft and criminal trespass on at least one individual, according to Director of Safety and Security Randy Nichols.

"As soon as formal criminal charges are filed, we will release more information," wrote Nichols in an email to the Orient.

Security has issued criminal trespass warnings to suspects, barring them from campus property.

On September 26, a Bowdoin student reported an attempted bike theft outside Druckenmiller Hall involving three teenage males using bolt cutters to cut the lock. The teenagers fled when they saw the student calling Security.

The Orient has previously reported that, on average, 35 bikes are reported missing annually. In this past September alone, however, as many as 17 bikes have been reported missing. Six have been recovered thus far.

In the ongoing investigation of the burglaries at Pickard Field House and 75 Harpswell Rd., more information will be released upon the suspect's arrest and charging.

According to Nichols, the cases are currently under investigation by the BPD and are under review by the District Attorney's office.
