The problem is most of the bikes found aren't registered and the person who lost the bike didn't keep proof of ownership, like a receipt from when it was purchased or the bike's serial number.
On average the Mesa County Sheriff's Office finds between 100-140 lost or stolen bikes a year. Typically only one or two of those will be returned to their owners.
Right now over a dozen bikes sit unclaimed. This could easily be prevented if you register your bike!
Register your bike with the Mesa County Sheriff's Office
It's simple! If you live in the county download the Bike Registration form or pick one up from our office. Include a picture, the serial number of the bike, and your contact information. Then bring the form to our office at 215 Rice Street, Grand Junction. We are open Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. excluding observed holidays.
If your bike gets lost or stolen and we find it, our deputies can match that information and return your bike back to you!
