Keep an eye on your racks
Thieves have been targeting bike on car racks at Cannock Chase as two bikes were stolen on Saturday.
The Marin Mount Vision (Incident number 515 of January 30) had a white frame, black forks and a black and blue saddle. The Orange Alpine (Incident number 529 of January 30) was black with Orange stickers.
It seem like obvious advice but just because a trail centre car park seems a friendly and sociable place it can also be a goldmine for opportunistic thieves, even in the middle of a busy weekend. We advise you keep an eye on your bike at all times and if you cannot do this ensure it is properly secured with at least two locks.
Anyone with any information on the incidents is asked to contact Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting the relevant incident number given above.
Alternatively, they can contact independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111
