British Transport Police investigate more bike thefts from East Surrey stations
1:48pm Wednesday 20th March 2013 in Local News
British Transport Police (BTP) are investigating a spate of bike thefts at Redhill and Merstham railway stations.
The three thefts took place at the stations in January and last November.
In the first, a 16-year-old boy left his bike secured at Merstham station on Wednesday, November 28, at 10.30am, only to return at 7.30pm to find his black specialised hybrid-style road bike gone.
The next day, at Redhill station, a man left his bike, a Giant Defy 2 road bike, secured in the racks at 6.30am.
When he returned later that day at around 5.20pm, his bike and the lock had been stolen.
And at Redhill station again on Wednesday, January 30, another bike was reported stolen from the cycle racks.
The owner had secured it at 6.55am, but found it gone when he returned at 4.45pm.
That bike was described as a red Cannondale SL3 model with white, red and black writing on it.
Anyone with information should call the BTP on Freefone 0800 40 50 40, quoting B10/LSA of 06/03/2013.
Alternatively, people can call the independent charity, Crimestoppers, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
