CCTV helping to reduce bike thefts

Police are hoping that CCTV images will help them can track down two men they wish to speak to about a spate of bicycle thefts at train stations.

They are seeking information about two thefts from Redhill station and another from Mertsham station between November and January.

Bike TheftsIn the first incident at Mertsham a 16-year-old boy secured his black hybrid-style bike at around 10.30am and when he returned at 7.30pm it had gone.

The following day at Redhill a Giant Defy 2 road bike was left secured in the racks at 6.30am and when the owner returned at 5.20pm the bike had gone – along with the lock.

The third theft also took place at Redhill in January when a red Cannondale SL3 model bike, with red, white and black writing on it, was locked there at about 6.55am, but had disappeared by 4.45pm.

British Transport Police believe that the two men who appear on the CCTV footage have key information with regard to the thefts and have appealed to anyone who knows the men, or their whereabouts, to get in touch At the same time Police have again advised all riders to register their bikes at www.bikeregister.com, and to ensure that they are always locked to a solid object in a well-lit, recognised bike storage area, with a solid lock passed through the wheel and the frame.
