During the course of this past spring and summer months, the Sylvania Police Division has recovered many bicycles that were found and turned into the police department by our residents or officers on patrol.  These bicycles may have been taken from your residences and a police report never filed.  We are seeking to locate the owners for these bicycles.  If you have lost or had a bicycle taken, please contact the Sylvania Police Division.  If you do not know the serial number but have some other means of identifying the bicycle besides a serial number, please bring that with you.  We are looking to return these bicycles to their rightful owners.  Otherwise, these bicycles will be donated to Sylvania Area Family Services as authorized by council as in the years past.  If you have a bicycle that you feel may have been recovered by the police department, please contact us at 419-885-8902 or you may call our property room officer directly at 419-885-8913.
