BILL NUMBER:S6406

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the penal law, relating to the crime of criminal possession of
stolen property in the fourth degree where
the stolen property consists
of four or more bicycles

PURPOSE:
The purpose of this legislation is to deter bicycle theft by
making the possession of four or more stolen bicycles a class E felony.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill amends section 165.45 of the penal
law by adding a new subdivision 8.

JUSTIFICATION:
The New York City Department of Planning estimates that
over 70,000 bicycles are stolen in the five boroughs every year,
which breaks down to the theft of approximately 191 bicycles every day.
There has also been anecdotal evidence of increased bicycle theft
throughout the state, including cases where bikes have been stolen
and disassembled for parts. Under current law, the only way for
possession of multiple stolen bicycles to be prosecuted with a charge
above a misdemeanor is for the prosecution to prove that the
aggregate value of the bicycles is more than $1000. This bill
includes possession of four or more stolen bicycles as a
qualification for criminal possession of stolen property in the
fourth degree, which is a class E Felony.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-2010: A.9447A

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the first of November
next succeeding the date on which it shall have become law.
