We’re looking to trace a man we believe can help our investigation after a bike was stolen from Worcester Foregate Street railway station.

At around 4.50pm on Monday 19 March, the thief walked up to the cycle racks and cut the lock before leaving the station with the bicycle.

Having viewed CCTV, officers have managed to isolate an image of a man they believe may have vital information.

Do you know who he is? Anyone with information can get in touch by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40, quoting reference 597 of 19/03/2018. Alternatively, ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Additional information

 

Unfortunately, bikes remain a popular target for opportunist thieves but there are lots of things you can do to lessen your chances of becoming a victim of bike theft. Always remember to use strong, durable locks and ensure your property is adequately marked and secured, which makes it much easier to identify and therefore helps reduce the risk of theft. Also, don’t forget to register your bike at www.bikeregister.com.

 

Our officers regularly conduct cycle crime awareness surgeries at stations to offer crime prevention advice and undertake plain clothes and high-profile operations to catch thieves in the act. Thieves should also be aware that most cycle racks are covered by CCTV, so it’s only a matter of time before we track them down.

 

Further advice and information on keeping your bike safe and secure is available on the bicycle security section of our website.
