11:00am Wednesday 18th September 2013 in News
POLICE in Weymouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a mountain bike was stolen in Wyke Regis.
The theft happened between 7.30pm on Saturday August 31 and 7.25am on Sunday September 1 outside a property on Connaught Road.
The red and white Specialized Rockhopper SL Comp mountain bike was secured to the roof of a blue Audi estate car parked outside a house on the street when it was stolen.
PC James Vincent, of Weymouth police, said: “Following extensive enquiries I am now able to release an image of the missing mountain bike.
“It is very distinctive in appearance, with a red and white frame, white saddle and thin road tyres.
“The theft of this bicycle has caused the owner, who was visiting family from Bicester in Oxfordshire at the time, great distress and would be very expensive to replace.
“I am appealing to anyone who may have seen this theft take place or has information about those responsible to get in touch with Dorset Police on 101.
“I am also keen to hear from anyone who may have purchased this bike for an unusually low price or in strange circumstances, or may have been offered it for cash.”
No arrests have been made. Police have just released details of the crime.
Witnesses and anyone with information can call Dorset Police on 101, quoting incident number 01:143. Or call Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.
