Bicycle Sting Arrest

Posted By Winchester Police on September 4th, 2012

Due to an large number of bicycle thefts around Winchester center and the train stations, the Winchester Police Department took a proactive approach to the problem.  Over the course of  three days, a bicycle owned by the department was placed in several locations in and around the center for a couple of hours a day.  The bicycle was monitored by police during that time.  On the third day after only 45 minutes, the bicycle was stolen by Anthony Papasodero of Hull with the assistance of Adam Smilgis of Winchester.  Papasodero was arrested immediately and Smigilis, who dropped Papasodero off at the bike, was arrested later on an unrelated warrant and also charged with the larceny.  Though two were charged in this incident, most bicycle thefts go unsolved.  The Winchester Police Department reminds residents to lock their bicycles.
