The stolen bicycles themselves are not specific and rang from high to low value; a further emerging pattern in relation to theses thefts is that a number of them have been from secure underground car parks at residential properties namely; Spectrum Apartments, Century Court Apartments and Millennium Court Apartments, all on Douglas Promenade.
The bikes have been taken from a number of different apartment blocks but in each case the thieves have gained access through locked security gates and then managed to remove combination locks that have been used to secure the bicycles to the fabric of the building
Police are asking that people check their bikes to make sure they are secure and that the lock fitted is of sufficient quality to prevent these types of crimes form occurring. If anyone has witnessed any thefts taking place or has any information that could help police they are asked to please make contact any police station or ring Police Headquarters.
