The next incident happened on 24 February at around 4pm when six men spotted three young people on their bicycles at Sainsbury’s in Dorridge and then followed them to Dorridge station. Once at the station four bicycles were stolen from the racks.

The third incident happened on 26 February at 5.16pm when two people stole bikes from the racks.
