Thieves take three bikes from a garden in Louth

POLICE are warning people to be on their guard after three more bicycles were stolen from a garden in Louth.

This comes just a week after three were stolen from a garden in Bulldog Crescent in Grimoldby.

The Louth thefts took place sometime after 6pm on Saturday and before 12noon on Sunday from a garden in Newmarket.

One of the bikes was particularly distinctive as it is marked in Landrover livery with a very expensive saddle. The other bikes are a black Appollo and a red and black Vibe Ignite BMX.

Sgt Alasdair Booth, from the Wolds Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Residents mustn’t assume that cycles are secure when in a garden as, unfortunately, opportunist thieves will be quite bold and will enter through garden gates in order to steal.

“Use good quality bike locks whenever cycles are left unattended and ensure that shed and garage security is as good as it can be.

“Anyone who would like to find out more about home and garden security, or who is interested in having their bike security marked, should contact their local Neighbourhood Policing Team by calling 101.”

Anyone who can help the police find the bikes should call the policwe on 101, quoting incident 328 of July 29.
