POLICE are urging people to secure cycles and ensure bikes are not left unlocked and unattended following a spate of thefts in the south Yarmouth area.

Officers from the South Yarmouth Safer Neighbourhood team have issued the warning after thieves stole a bicycle from the garden of a property off Alma Road between 5.55pm and 6.05pm on Wednesday.

The owner had left the black x-rated cycle unattended for around 10 minutes. A black padlock was fastened around the seat of cycle.

On February 20, between 8.45am and 9.15am, a ladies purple/pink coloured cycle was stolen from Blackfriars Road in Great Yarmouth. Again the cycle had been left insecure.

Sgt Craig Miller, from South Yarmouth SNT, said: “In both cases the cycles had been left unattended and insecure. One cycle was even stolen with its lock which was fastened around the seat.

“While both cycles were only left for a few minutes we would urge owners to make sure they always lock cycles and never leave them unattended.”

Anyone with information in relation to either theft should call the South Yarmouth SNT on 0845 4564567.
