Two bicycles worth £4,000 have been stolen from a shed in Lincoln.

The theft took place between January 6 and 9 at an address in Staverton Crescent, Birchwood.

Offenders broke into a shed by removing wooden panels, before stealing the two distinctive bikes.

The Litespeed American road bike which was taken is fairly rare and worth around £3,500. The second Trek bike is around eight years old, but still valued at £500.

Police are appealing for anyone with any information on the theft, or anyone who sees the bikes being offered for sale, to contact them immediately.

Call PC Simon Burnett via the non-emergency 101 number, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    You people amaze me, telling the owners of the bikes what to do without having a clue of what security they had. You seem to be making the owner seem like the one responsible and not the thieving gits who nicked them.

    I doubt anyone would spend all that time removing shed panels unless they knew there was something other than old tins of paint inside. I'd be looking at my neighbours.

    The offenders spent time removing wooden panels and nobody heard anything? Strange. Hope they were insured.

    And the moral of this story,don't keep anything worth a lot of money in your low security shed or if you absolutely have to,fit a ground anchor to chain it to,personally If i had a bikes worth that much I'd keep them under my bed.
