Images of a group of men police would like to identify in connection with the incidents at Didcot station on January 17
THESE men are being sought by British Transport Police after two bicycles were stolen from Didcot Parkway.
Pc Bob Burrowes, the officer investigating, said: “The bikes were securely locked to the cycle rack at Didcot Parkway rail station by two local passengers early in the morning.
“When they returned to the station in the afternoon, they discovered the locks had been cut and their bikes had been stolen.”
The two incidents happened on Tuesday, January 17, and the images were released yesterday.
Pc Burrowes added: “Unfortunately cycles are a popular target for thieves but there are several steps people can take to ensure their bikes are adequately marked and secured to help reduce the risk of becoming a victim of bike theft.
“The best thing to remember is to register your bike and also to ensure a solid lock is used.”
