CCTV appeal following theft of bikes in Bournemouth

Officers investigating the theft of two bicycles from a sports club in Bournemouth are issuing CCTV images of the suspects.

At around 5.45pm on Tuesday 4 September 2018 two men entered the grounds of the West Hants Club on Roslin Road South and used bolt croppers to cut the locks of two bikes.

The first bike was a grey and green Cube 20-inch bike and the second was a distinctive black and white Specialized Tarmac bike with a name written on the front fork.

Police Community Support Investigator Jared Sharman, of Bournemouth police, said: “As part of my investigations I am releasing two CCTV images of the suspects and I would urge anyone who recognises these men to please contact Dorset Police.

“I am also keen to hear from anyone who has seen the stolen bikes being offered for sale in suspicious circumstances.”
