Weekend initiative to reunite stolen bicycles with their owners


Surrey Police are taking over an empty retail unit over the weekend of Saturday, 19 January, and Sunday, 20 January, to try and reunite owners with bicycles that are believed to have been stolen in north Surrey and borders.

Members of the public whose bike has been lost or stolen are invited to come along Bikesand see if their bike is among the 50 bicycles on display. Officers will be in an empty retail unit in the Elmsleigh Centre in Staines-Upon-Thames from 10am to 4pm each day.

Detective Constable Paul Rennison said: “We have reviewed crimes in north Surrey and just over the border in the Thames Valley and Metropolitan Police areas but have been unable to link these bicycles to any burglaries or thefts. I would urge anyone whose bike has been lost or stolen to come along and check whether theirs is among those on display.

“Anyone coming along on the day is asked to bring any documentation they have about their bicycle and any police crime reference numbers they have if it has been reported as stolen property.

“If you are unable to attend on either of these days but have had a bike stolen which you have not reported to the police, then please call 101 to report the theft with a detailed description of the bicycle, including a serial number if possible.”
