Following a series of bike thefts at Aylesbury railway station, we are appealing for information to identify a number of people we’d like to speak to in connection with the offences.

The incidents happened from October to January this year when bikes were taken at various times of day from the cycle racks at the station.

Officers would like to speak to the people shown in the CCTV images as they may have information which could help the investigation.

If you know who any of the people are, or have any other information about the incidents, please call PC Mark Molyneux on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quoting reference number 314 of 7 February.

Officers are also reminding cyclists of the importance of securing bikes properly in order to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of crime.

PC Mark Molyneux said: “We are working to reduce bike thefts at Aylesbury railway station with a range of policing tactics, but there are also a number of things cyclists can do to keep their bikes safe.

“Always use a recognised security standard lock such as a D-lock, extension cable or heavy chain lock to lock the frame and both wheels of the bike to a cycle stand or a strong immovable object.

“Consider using more than one lock and whenever possible, lock you r bike in a busy, well-lit and CCTV covered area.

“Locks are considered more vulnerable when they come into contact with the ground, so keep them off the floor. Make the lock (s) and bike hard to manoeuvre when parked by ensuring little room between the stand and the bike. Register your bike at www.bikeregister.com and mark it with a postcode, as well as taking a photograph of your bike and recording the frame number. This will help us to recover it if it is stolen.

“If anyone has any information about the people in the CCTV images, or has seen anything out of the ordinary at Aylesbury railway station, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Any small detail could help us with building our intelligence and preventing further crime.”
