In the early hours of Thursday October 6th thieves struck local Sheffield bike shop The BikeTree.
Armed with a 4×4 and some anchor chain, the thieves pulled out an entire building window and frame before fleeing with around 20 complete bikes and frames.
Within ten minutes local police were on the scene, alerted by the shop’s GSM alarm system. Unfortunately the thieves had already left – leaving half of the shop front spread over the shop’s car park.
The BikeTree said: "The bikes and frames stolen were a random mix of items nearest the ‘removed’ window, suggesting that the thieves were more opportunistic than selective.
"Listed below are details of the stolen items, so if you see any of these around Sheffield or the Peak, pedaled by dodgy looking folk or advertised then please drop the guys at the shop a line on 0114 236 5858 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
"It’s almost business as usual at the tree – with a little extra ventilation – and the guys are hoping to be restocked soon!"
