Theft of bicycles in Lee on Solent

Alert message sent 05/03/2019 10:39:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Dear Citizen,

We have received a report of two valuable bicycles that have been stolen from a shed in Lee on Solent.

The break in happened sometime over the last week to a shed located in the rear garden of a property. Both are Giant bicycles, one is a "Defy 2" in bronze (pictured below) and the other is an "Avail" in purple. Please be aware should you see anyone trying to sell these bicycles cheaply.

I would like to take the opportunity to remind all bike owners of a few security arrangements that can help to avoid being the victim of bike theft.
  • Ensure you use an approved Sold Secure  "D" lock to secure your bike.  - visit www.soldsecure.com for more information.
  • Always lock your bike through the frame to a solid structure that is fixed to the ground, preferably a dedicated bike rack.
  • Park your bike in a well-lit busy area that is covered by CCTV.
  • If you have any quick-release items on your bike, make sure you take them with you or lock them to the bike.
  • Register your bike for free at www.immobilise.com. The police use this to reunite stolen or lost property with its rightful owner.
  • If you are in private rented accommodation and you keep your bike in a shed or garage, make sure there is a decent lock on the door and the bike can be secured with a "D" lock to an anchor point that is fixed into the ground.

Kind regards,
Gosport Neighbourhood Team
