Cheshire police seek to reunite 30 stolen bikes with owners

Had a bike stolen in the northwest? It might be worth casting your eyes over this list ...

Police in Cheshire are looking to reunite more than 30 bicycles recovered earlier this month with their owners. They add that two men have been arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods in connection with the bicycles, and have been released on police bail.

In a post on its website, Cheshire Constabulary says: “We require proof of ownership before re-uniting owners with their bikes so if you have had a bike lost or stolen and you think one of those listed below belongs to you, please contact chester.inner.npu [at] with the colour and serial number.

“If you don’t have the serial number, it is worth asking the shop you bought it from as many will keep a record of the serial numbers of high value bicycles sold and who they were sold to,” they add.

“Due to the high volume of interest received, please do not contact Cheshire Police concerning your bicycle if you do not have this information ready as we will be unable to verify that you are the owner.”

Here’s a list of the bicycles that have been recovered.

I wouldn't risk prison to lift any of those...  3

Are they checking existing crime reports? including those from neighbouring forces? as that would be the easiest way to trace anyone who did actually keep a record of their frame number.
