Found stolen bike

Alert message sent 15/03/2019 08:28:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

We are asking for the owner of a possible stolen bike to make contact with us as we may have it.

Wednesday, March 13 the attached post appeared on the ‘Spotted Alvaston’ Facebook page from someone who said their bike had been stolen.

We think we may have this bike and if so would like to return it to the owner, however they do not appear to have reported the theft to us.

Sergeant Dave Walker, who is in charge of Safer Neighbourhood policing in Alvaston, said: “This shows the value of reporting any theft to us as then when we do recover property we are able to trace the owner.

We also encourage bike owners to have their property marked with " target="_blank"> " target="_blank"> " target="_blank"> where the bike is marked with a unique code linked to the owner’s details on a secure database. If their cycle is stolen and subsequently found, we can use this code to ensure the bike is returned to its rightful owner and prove it is stolen.

Are you the owner of this bike?

If so please make contact with us so we can see the bike that we have is yours. Contact PC James Magee using any of the following non-emergency methods and quoting reference number 19*129305:

Facebook – send us a private message to /DerbyshireConstabularyTwitter – direct message our contact centre on @DerPolContact Website – complete the online contact form " target="_blank"> " target="_blank"> " target="_blank"> Phone – call us on 101.
