Bicycle thief is out and about

July 12, 2017

There have been three separate bicycle thefts in Seymour during the past week.

On July 2, a red and black GT Avalanche mountain bike was stolen when the owner went to visit a friend in Monash Dve, Seymour.

The owner leaned the bike up against the fence and left it unattended for only 15 minutes.

During this time unknown offender(s) have seized the opportunity to take the bike.

Another mountain bike was stolen when the owner left it unsecured at the front of the Kings Park football club rooms while he went to footy training on June 29.

The mountain bike was later recovered by a Seymour resident who found it lying in the middle of the Kings Park oval.

A third bike was stolen from the yard of a residence in Tarcombe Rd, Seymour, some time between June 19 and 23.

The bike is described as an electric Avanti Hybrid and green in colour.

These thefts should be a reminder for everyone to keep their valuables and possessions secure at all times.
