A family has been left devastated after two high-valued mountain bikes were taken from a locked garage.

The bikes were stolen from Elm Avenue in Newark-on-Trent at around 2.40am on 24 April and officers are now appealing for anyone with any information to come forward to help with their investigation.

Police have now issued CCTV images to help with their enquiries.


Officers are keen to speak to four people pictured who were allegedly in the area at the time of the offence.

She said: “It is absolutely devastating when items are stolen and we will always thoroughly investigate reports of burglary and theft.

“The thefts have had a big effect on the family and we are doing everything we can to help retrieve their stolen items.

“Burglary is one of the most upsetting crimes anyone can suffer and it leaves the home owner with a series of practical and emotional issues to resolve.

“Officers have trawled local CCTV footage and we believe that someone may have heard a loud bang of the garage being broken into.

“We are keen to speak to the people pictured in connection with the incident. If anyone recognises them or witnessed anything suspicious around that time then please do get in touch.

“We are also urging anyone who may recognise the bikes or even perhaps being sold online please call police so we can reunite them with the rightful owners.

“If anyone can help with our enquiries please call 101, quoting incident number 166 of 24 April 2021.”
