Thieves take police bikes

BURGLARS climbed an eight-foot wall into a Cleveland Police compound - and made off with four expensive mountain bikes.

The raiders struck at the recently opened South Bank police office, used by the Grangetown and South Bank neighbourhood policing teams.

They scaled the wall during the early hours of the morning, when the office was shut.

Police later discovered the bikes were missing from the “secure” compound - and have admitted they were not chained up.

It doesn’t look too good for the new police station does it? The thing that irritates me is that you never actually see police on bikes around here so they don’t need bikes. Maybe they are going to start riding bikes instead of driving cars?
