Appeal to find owners of bicycles

Alert message sent 12/05/2022 10:00:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers are hoping to find the owners of valuable bicycles worth around £14,000 recovered from a garage in Boscombe.
They were discovered after one victim was able to track his stolen bike using a chip inserted in it. 
Officers were able to gain access to the garage and discovered a total of 10 bicycles and a disc cutter, all believed to be stolen in recent weeks.
Police Constable Tom Ringer, of Bournemouth police, said: “I’ve been making a number of enquiries to try and find the owners of these bikes but have so far not been able to return them to their rightful owners.
“It appears that not all these items were reported stolen so if anyone recognises their bicycle or disc cutter in the pictures, please get in touch with us.”
Images can be seen via the Dorset police website here.
If your bicycle has been stolen recently but it is not in these pictures, please report this to us through the normal channels and not refer to the reference number below as it is unlikely to be related to this particular investigation. 
Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55220068407. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at or call Freephone 0800 555 111.
