This is a growing concern in the Crofton area! The police and home owners associations need to take action on this. Many motorcycles including my boyfriends and two of my neighbors have been stolen this year. It is out of control!! The police didn't even come out to the area to check for evidence that could be use to locate any suspects. They took a statement over the phone and basically said tough luck. It's outrageous that the home owners associations wont allow anyone to put in a post structure to chain their bikes too! I have written several strong worded letters requesting a parking area for motorcycles where they can be chain to something and I get no response. Any ideas?
