Hi Orpy,

I have CCTV of the lads.  Not very good images of faces but very clear what they were wearing so it might be useful to the police.

Anecdotal evidence is that entry was by the unlocked back gate and a propped open pedestrian door.

Let me know if the police want the CCTV and I will supply it.

My bike was recovered, thank you whoever recovered and Simon for returning.

I noticed the bikes that were untouched had a D-Lock, my 2 chains were pretty substantial but the D-Locks must prove more difficult for a bolt cutter. I am purchasing now and would recommend the same to any other residents.

Happy weekend ahead

So there was a racing bike with a note on about being prevented from being stolen, which is (i hope still in the garage) could this be yours?

I will check the CCTV, which rack was it locked too?

On the night in question after I spotted the theives, I checked my bike and it was there. Discovered it was missing this morning. Not sure if they finished the job that night or came back. They must have had some very large bolt cutters to get through my 2 bike locks. I have reported to the police. Can I ask if there was anything on CCTV. I’m sure they were smart enough to wear hoodies and/or caps to avoid identification

The gates were locked so far as I know.

Happy to help, conincidence I was on the patio at the time.

The entry garage door was the only one I checked and was closed. a fellow neighbour (green,and dock side) took one bike they didn’t manage to take but had “unchained” back into the building.

Thanks Orpy,

Were the back gates left open do you know?  I will check the closers on each of the pedestrian doors, sometimes they can leave themselves slightly ajar.

I will get the codes changed if the checks above prove inconclusive.  I have had a look at the CCTV and they didn't go to the bike racks at the entrance or exit so it does make this a bit more suspicious.

Spotted some unusual activity last night in the main/big garden. Quickly realised this was 3 people stealing bikes. I shouted and they ran away. Should we change the security codes on the garage doors?
