VALUABLE BIKES STOLEN: Exmouth police are appealing for information after two bicycles were last week stolen from a home in Littleham.
Officers said the two mountain bikes, one was silver with distinctive gold handlebars and the other was black, were taken from a property in Rodney Close overnight on October 7.
Littleham police community support officer Malcolm Maguire is keen to hear from anyone who knows of the bikes’ whereabouts, or from anyone who has been offered similar cycles.
PCSO Maguire said both bikes were worth a ‘significant’ amount of money.
If you have any information about the theft of the bikes, contact the police on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, quoting crime reference KE/11/2633.
