More bicycles have been reported stolen in town this week, adding to losses totaling nearly $10,000 in thefts reported since the beginning of the month.

Following a rash of thefts beginning with an $8,000 racing bicycle reported stolen from a Stonybrook Road garage July 2, three more incidents were reported to police Monday.

A bicycle valued at $900 was reported stolen from the south side of the Fairfield Railroad Station sometime between 7:45 a.m. and 6:10 p.m. Monday. Police said the bicycle's owner told officers the bike had been locked to a rack.

Another bicycle, also valued at $900, was swiped from the back of a vehicle parked on the Post Road near the town's border with Bridgeport sometime between 5 and 7 p.m. Monday. The bike was chained to a rack and the lock was cut by the thief, according to the report. A computer valued at $250 attached to the bicycle also was stolen, police said.

A $200 bicycle was stolen from the Fairfield Metro Center railroad station's New Haven-bound side sometime between 7:19 a.m. and 7:22 p.m. Monday, police said.
