Appeal after two bicycles are stolen from a shed in Tintwistle

Posted on 31st May 2018

We are appealing for information two bicycles were stolen from a shed in Tintwistle.

They were taken sometime between around 9am on Saturday, May 26 and 12 noon on Monday, May 28 from the shed on Manchester Road.

PCSO Brian Buller of the Hadfield and Tintwistle Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “While we are making enquiries, we would also like to take the opportunity to remind residents to consider the security of their sheds, garages and outbuildings to help protect their property from thieves.

“I would also urge anyone with information about these bikes, or who may have noticed anything suspicious to contact us.”

People are advised to:

  • Ensure that all outbuildings are fitted with a quality lock and are kept secure;
  • Consider purchasing a shed alarm to help to deter a thief and secure any bikes with a quality chain even if they are inside the shed or garage;
  • Ensure that valuables are kept out of view from passers-by and consider covering any windows from the inside to prevent thieves from taking a look;
  • Mark valuable items with a forensic property marking fluid and register your valuables with www.immobilise.com for free. This can help to deter criminals and help police return property if it is stolen and then recovered.

Anyone with information should call PCSO Brian Buller on 101, quoting reference 18*243801, or send him a message online through the Contact Us page of the website, by clicking here.
