Please read the message below from PS Tim Hutchinson reference new information related to bike thefts.
Please could you urge cyclists to keep an eye out for a white Vauxhall Combi van on '05 plates. There will obviously be lots of these around, but we have reason to believe that one is connected to thefts of pedal cycles.
Clearly we don't want to receive a report of every such van, as the vast majority will be used by totally legitimate and law abiding members of the public, but if any are seen in suspicious circumstances, we would very much like to hear from people. Either email me if it's just general info, or if it requires more immediate attention, ring the contact centre (0845 090 1234).
Also, I did hear a vague report of a pick up being seen up at Daisybank recently, with the occupants watching the bikers intently. I have no idea where that report came from and no further details. Again, if anyone has anything they want to tell me, please encourage them to drop me a line.
If you are followed home by this car or any other please report this to the local police (0845 090 1234) and lock your bikes up in your house for a while. Cars have been known to return only hours later to take the bikes. Carefully choose your route home so that you cannot be easily followed and keep an eye over your shoulder.
