Appeal following the theft of high-value bicycles in Glasgow
Police in Glasgow are investigating the theft of a number of bicycles after a garage was broken into on Glenburn Crescent in Milton of Campsie.
The incident took place around 7pm on Monday, 18 October. Four men were witnessed forcing entry to the garage and stealing four bicycles – three of which were ‘Santa Cruz’ models, with a total estimated value of around £30,000. They then left the area on two mopeds, with the rear passengers carrying the stolen bikes.
Enquiries have established that the suspects were soon afterwards seen committing numerous road traffic offences near to Lennoxtown and the Bishopbriggs area, all whilst still on the mopeds and in possession of the stolen bikes.
These offences included causing a collision with a grey Skoda Fabia on Colton Road. The driver of the car was uninjured.
Constable Bonner Young said: “We are appealing to anyone with information on the thefts, or anyone who witnessed the suspects during the evening of Monday, 18 October, to please come forward.
“Given the very public nature of the thefts and the further offences, we know there are witnesses out there. If you believe you can assist our enquiries, please call police on 101, quoting incident 1219 of 19 October. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, if you wish to remain anonymous.”
