Stolen bicycles haul tops 25,000
Bicycles with a total value of more than 25,000 have been stolen in Guernsey since the start of the year.

In the last week alone, five bikes have been taken in the island. In one theft, a bike worth about 2,000 went missing from Vale Road.

Guernsey's Crime Prevention Officer, Bernie English, is urging people to report their stolen cycles as missing.

He said: "Many are taken by people just to get home, and they might end up in a police station cycle store."

He added: "Often bikes are recovered and the owners never found. The numbers can be just staggering."
