  • No suspect description available


The Miami University police received a report of the theft of an electric bicycle. The electric bicycle was reported to have been taken from a bicycle rack outside of Maple Street Station. The electric bicycle is described as a white Nakto E-bike with a tan basket on the front. The Jeanne Clery Act defines an electric bicycle as a motor vehicle, necessitating this notification.

***Police remind everyone to use a "U-Bolt" type bicycle lock when securing bicycles to appropriate storage racks and to record the serial number of bicycles and other transportation devices.***

Members of the community who know of a crime or other serious incident should report that incident as soon as possible to the Police Department so that a Safety Bulletin can be issued, if warranted. The intent of Safety Bulletins is to alert the campus community of continuing threats especially concerning safety, thereby enabling community members to protect themselves.

If community members report crimes or serious incidents to other University Administrators, those administrators will notify the Police Department. Representatives will promptly notify and collaborate with the Police Department to issue a Safety Bulletin, if appropriate.

The Miami University Police Department works in conjunction with the Dean of Students and the Director of University News and Communications to issue Safety Bulletins in a timely manner to notify community members about certain crimes in and around our community. Together they determine whether or not a criminal offense meets the established criteria and merits the issuance of a Safety Bulletin.

In addition to containing details of the crime and a description of the suspect, they also contain crime prevention tips, information on who to contact about the case, date and time the bulletin was released, and other relevant and important information.

Older Safety Bulletins can be requested from the MU Police Department.
