A WARNING has been issued to cyclists in Lowestoft by police after a further spate of thefts.

Officers are urging cyclists to remember to lock up their bikes and take further steps to secure them after more pedal cycle thefts in the town.

Thieves stole a man's blue and silver hybrid bike with light grey mudguards, a new black saddle and a bag attached to the handlebars from the garden of a home in Durban Road, Kirkley between 1.15pm and 4.25pm on Tuesday, August 18.

Two mountain bikes - a red unisex cycle and a girl's pink and purple bike with white forks - were stolen from a cycle rack at the Water Lane sports centre in Lowestoft between 12.30pm and 2.30pm on Monday, August 24.

A man's mountain bike with a red frame, white forks and a bracket on the handlebars was stolen from a bike rack at Riverside Road in Lowestoft between 10am and 2.20pm on Tuesday, August 18.

“Although in several of the cases above the bikes had been left locked up, many recent thefts have occurred when bikes have been left unlocked in front or back gardens so please don't leave your bike lying around unlocked and unattended - particularly at your home address,” a police spokesman said. “Please remember to postcode your bike, try to store it out of view and secure it to something solid at all times, preferably locked inside a secure and alarmed shed if possible.”

Anyone with information about the thefts should telephone Lowestoft police on 01986 835300.
