Bike-ninjas and crosswalks top concerns at second Aberdeen ward meeting

ABERDEEN, Wash. - Taking back the night and the crosswalks of Aberdeen seemed to be the theme of last night's ward meeting at A.J. West Elementary. Local business owner Gary Randall has been facing expensive theft and vandalism issues in the second ward. "Usually about two, or three o'clock in the morning you literally have to drive very carefully - especially around the neighborhood, because there are people in black clothing riding bicycles. These people are all out doing wrong things, each person that I've caught on camera stealing from me is dressed in clandestine type clothing - same people I see on bicycles. I don't know why this is going on, I don't know why the police department can't fix this problem.
Police Chief Bob Torgerson replied "Everybody that's riding a bicycle dressed in black, it's legal and they can do that. We have methods, and our officers do engage those folks, but they are limited within the Constitution of the United States. The same [laws] that protect all of our rights, also protect their rights." Torgerson added "As far as arresting people, we'll arrest as many as we can - but there's also [the question of] what we do with them."
