Police appeal after bike stolen from Camborne train station
12:00pm Friday 3rd January 2014 in News
British Transport Police (BTP) is appealing for information following the theft of a bicycle from Camborne railway station.
Investigators are calling on the public to help trace the bike and bring the thief to justice.
PC Wayne Frost, of BTP, said: “The 24-year-old victim secured his grey Carrera Kraken mountain bike at the cycle racks at Camborne railway station at 7.30am on Friday, 29 November 2013.
“He discovered it missing when he returned to collect it at about 9.30pm on the same day.
“Enquiries have been ongoing since the theft to discover who took the cycle. I am today able to release a photograph of the stolen cycle and I would urge anyone who knows its current whereabouts – or who is responsible for taking it – to come forward with any information.”
Unfortunately, bicycles remain a desirable target for many thieves at train stations. However, BTP is cracking down on this type of crime and we have a dedicated team of officers specifically focused on tackling this issue.
PC Frost added: “We are undertaking plain clothes and high profile operations to catch thieves in the act. We are also working closely with cycle and second-hand shops in the area and are monitoring online auction and advertising sites to make it more difficult for thieves to sell on stolen property.”
Anyone with information should call British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016. Alternatively the independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
In all calls please quote incident reference WWA/B3 of 02/01/14.
