Stash of stolen bikes recovered by police
POLICE are trying to trace the owners of six stolen bikes they have found in raids on homes in Staple Hill and Fishponds.
The bikes (above and below) are among eight bikes recovered last week, two of which have already been returned to their rightful owners by PC Kyle Maywood and PC Gary Lippiatt, who now want to track down the other owners.
Avon and Somerset police say two men, aged 22 and 39, have been questioned interview as part their investigation.
PC Maywood said: “It was great to be able to return two of the bikes on Saturday.
“They had been reported as stolen and as the owners had given us their bike’s unique frame number, we were able to hand them back.
“However, there are half a dozen other bikes we’ve recovered and we hope people may be able to recognise theirs from the pictures.
“If you do, contact us and provide us with the unique frame number so we can return it to you.”
Anyone who believes their bike may be one of the six should contact the police via their website or call 101, quoting crime reference number 5220 083 549.
