Grantham mum appeals for safe return of sons stolen bikes
A mum has appealed for the safe return of her two sons bikes after they were stolen from outside a Grantham supermarket this week.
Tanya Atter's sons were on their way home from school on Tuesday when they stopped off at Lidl supermarket in Watergate, Grantham.
Tanya said: "My 11-year-old stayed inside the supermarket foyer with the bikes while his 12-year-old brother and their friend went inside to the bakery. Three adults then appeared and stole the bikes including their friends bike too. They must have been watching them."
The three boys chased the the offenders but couldn't catch up with them.
Tanya is now appealing for them to 'do the right thing' and return the bikes so her sons can ride them to school.
She said: "I’m not bothered about who stole them. I just want them back. It took my two sons nearly an hour to walk to school this morning. They are not going to be able to ride them around without being noticed. Please do the right thing and return them."
A spokespersonfrom Lincolnshire Police said: "Incident 351 of 17th September refers to the theft of two bikes from outside Lidl in Watergate, Grantham. This was reported at 5.37pm.
One bike was a white Whistle Mountain Bike with green on it and the other was a yellowy green Diamondback.
Incident 344 is a report from a member of the public who reported that three bikes were taken from outside Lidl.
The caller reported that two men had left the supermarket with three bikes. One man was wearing a baseball cap with red on it and he had a beard. The other man had short dark hair and was wearing a jumper.
"If anyone has any information they can call us on 101."
