Here’s a better picture of the bike from the stolen bike listing
Police are looking for the rider of a Trek Madone 4.9 that was reported stolen hours before it was snapped by an official event photographer, complete with the victim’s event number board still attached, while it was being ridden down the mall.
The owner reported his bike stolen at 1pm on Saturday 3rd August after discovering thieves had broken his lock after leaving it at Green Park near Constitution Hill, London.
Following the event the owner stumbled across a picture of his bike being ridden by someone as yet to be identified while browsing the images of the official event photographer.
The ‘suspect’ is described as a ‘white male wearing blue cycle helmet, sunglasses, a blue and white striped t-shirt, beige/grey shorts and blue and white shoes.”
But why bother with that description when there’s a perfectly good picture of him..
Anyone with information is urged to contact PC Brierley who is leading the investigation for the Cycle Task Force on 07768 928456 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
The full details of the incident can be read here on the Met Police website.
