A PAIR of brothers in Dorchester whose BMX bikes were taken have had them returned.

Mum Kelly Shapley said the bikes were taken from sons Lee and Taryn’s grandmother’s house in Windsor Road last week but were later put back in the same place days later.

Kelly said that, although 12-year-old Taryn’s bike was not quite in the same condition it was in before, both he and his brother Lee, 15, were delighted to have their bikes back.

She said: “It was a bit of a shock.

“I don’t know whether it was the person who stole them that put them back.

“I never thought we would see then again so it’s good to have them back. The boys are happy that we have got them.”
