Illicit bicyclists seen in the skateboard park

One of the cases was reported at 12:53 p.m. on Thursday, April 30, when the police were told there were kids on bikes in the park. They were gone by the time officers arrived.

Another one occurred at 7:43 p.m. on Wednesday, April 29, when an officer found a bicyclist in the skateboard park. The officer warned the person.

The Police Department occasionally fields similar calls as the bicyclists seek out the ramps at the skateboard park. Bicyclists are prohibited from the skateboard park.
