Cycle thefts are on the increase in North Hykeham with thieves carrying equipment to cut locks, police have warned today (Sunday).
PCSO Julie Clark, from the North Hykeham police team, is advising residents to lock their cycles in a place where the cycle is out of sight – and to choose a lock that isn’t easy to cut.
She said bikes have been stolen from a number of locations.
“It would appear the offenders are going equipped as in most incidents the locks have been cut,” she said. “Please try and lock your cycle out of sight wherever possible. If they cannot see it, they will not make an effort to steal it.”
