Spate of bicycle thefts in Grantham, police warn

Lock up your bikes
Lock up your bikes

Police are warning cyclists in Grantham to beware of bike thieves after a recent spate of thefts.

Over the last couple of weeks a series of bicycles have been stolen from in and around Grantham.

Police are reminding bike owners to remember to keep their bikes locked securely whenever they are aware from them, no matter for how long a period of time.

Make sure your cycle is secured to a robust structure such as a lamp post or bicycle rack, and choose a site which is well lit, visible to members of the public and if possible in view of a CCTV camera. Remember to secure your bicycle when you get home to a robust structure or in a locked shed.

It is also a good idea to have your bike electronically tagged so if your cycle is stolen and then recovered police forces can trace owners via a national site. If you have been the victim of cycle crime and not reported details of your bicycle, ring 101 and give details so that officers can check if yours has been recovered.

Check with your local neighbourhood policing team by ringing 101 or visit www.police.uk to see if there is a property-marking event near you.
