Police in Surrey are appealing for witnesses in Bristol after more than £40,000 worth of electric bikes were stolen from an industrial unit.
People in Bristol are being urged to look out for 11 e-bikes, which have no documentation, being sold online or in the city, after the break-in at Merrow Business Park in Guildford, Surrey, last Tuesday (May 10).
Police believe five suspects broke into the unit sometime overnight between May 10 and May 11 before stealing a nearby Citroen van which they used to transport the e-bikes, worth £41,000, to the Bristol area.
Police Constable Phil Dagnall of Surrey Police, who is investigating the case, said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who has seen these bikes being sold online, or has possibly been approached to buy one themselves.
“All of the e-bikes were stolen without their chargers and will have no documentation to show where they have been bought from. Several of them also have really distinctive features as seen in the images.
“If this sounds familiar and you think you may be able to help with our investigation, please get in contact with us.”
Avon and Somerset Police has also shared the appeal, saying: “This investigation has links with the Bristol area. If you see any of these stolen e-bikes, or are offered them for sale, please call our colleagues @SurreyPolice.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Surrey Police using the reference 45220050535 via online or webchat, or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
