WASHINGTON (AP) The D.C. police union says an officer is being investigated for neglect of duty after two bicycles were stolen from Washington Mayor Adrian Fenty's home.

Union leader Kristopher Baumann says the officer assigned to the mayor's residence is not allowed to patrol the property. Officers are based in a guard house near the street.

Baumann says the officer immediately reported the June 3 incident when suspects were seen on a security camera in the mayor's open garage. The garage opens to a back alley.

Police spokesman Lt. Nicholas Breul says he has no information on the incident first reported by The (Washington) Examiner. He says police wouldn't generally discuss a case in which the mayor was a victim of a crime.

A spokeswoman for Fenty did not respond to requests for comment Monday.
