seek to reunite stolen bikes with their owners in Burnham
want to reunite stolen bikes with their rightful owners in the
comes after officers seized 15 bikes from a property in Burnham
last month following a search.
bikes were identified as having been stolen and, although five
have already been reunited with their owners, ten are still waiting
unclaimed in police custody as their owners couldn't be traced.
officers are keen to return the bikes to their owners. An open
day is planned at Burnham-On-Sea Police Station on Saturday January
9th between 4.00 6.00pm.
who has had a bike stolen are encouraged to attend to see if any
of the cycles are their missing property.
you plan to attend you will need to bring proof of your ID, such
as a photo driving licence or passport and, if possible, proof
of ownership such as a registration or frame number, receipt of
purchase or photographs.
Gill Bawler told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "If a member of the
public has had their bike stolen and wishes to attend the Open
Day but they don't have registration documents, they should still
come if they are able to describe the bike correctly especially
any distinguishing features such as specific scratches or damage,
stickers or modifications."
are really keen to reunite as many bikes with their owners as
possible. I would also like to take the opportunity to encourage
people, especially if you have had a new bike for Christmas, to
register it on www.immobilise.com or get your property marked.
If you get your bicycle security marked it dramatically increases
the chances of it being returned should it be lost or stolen."
who gets their bike security marked before the end of January
will be entered into a competition to win £150 worth of
