Following inquiries, police found a total of 12 bikes in the garage, on Monday 18 September, with a number suspected to have been stolen during garage and shed break-ins in the Beeston and Bramcote areas.

Inspector Mike Ebbins, District Commander of Broxtowe, said: “We are aware of the public’s concern around bike theft in the Broxtowe area and have been working with community intelligence to identify handlers.
