DENVER -- Bicycle thefts are up 20 percent in the first six months of the year and the numbers are expected to increase through the summer months, the Denver police Department said. Thieves are ripping more than three bicycles a day, police said. The heavily targeted areas include Capitol Hill, Five Points and Union Station. And it's happening in daylight, and even when owners have their bikes locked up, believing they are safe.
