Owners of high-value bikes warned after spate of thefts
6:00am Friday 4th October 2013 in News
Police are stepping up action to thwart criminals travelling to areas where they can find high-value bicycles to steal.
There have been 12 outbuilding burglaries over the past four weeks. Evening patrols are being stepped up, but Inspector Richard Coldwell said householders could be doing more to protect their property.
He said: “It isn’t uncommon to see people keeping £3,000 cycles in £300 sheds secured with only a £3 padlock.”
