Two separate homes on Poplar Avenue had bicycles stolen from their porches on Wednesday night, according to Annapolis Police.
A $250 bike was stolen from an enclosed porch in the 1000 block of Poplar Avenue. The owner said she left the bike unsecured on the porch before going to bed Wednesday night.
Just blocks away, someone cut a hole in a window screen to unlock the door of a porch in the 1400 block of Poplar Avenue. The person or persons took a $70 bike, police said.
Given the close proximity and time of the crimes, police are investigating whether the thefts are connected.
