zero bike thefts in half mile radius, but 2 burglaries
so would it get listed as a bike theft if taken in a burglary I wonder?
Nope. Anything stolen during a burglary would just be listed under property stolen. Not a separate crime.Posted 4 years agoHopk1nsMember
Just checking Police.uk website and I have noticed they have added Bicycle theft under crimes. So now you can enter your post code for home, work etc and see whats happened in your area over the last month.
Could give you a heads up if there is an increase of theft in your area.Posted 4 years agoircSubscriber
it’d be good to see how many bikes had been stolen from homes, since that’s how many of us feel our bikes are most vulnerable
For practical purposes you could probably count any burglary/housebreaking to a garage or shed as a bike theft when assessing risks in your area since any burglar that found a good quality bike would nearly always take it (assuming it wasn’t locked to a ground anchor or similar).
One of the benefits to living on the outer edge of the suburbs here is that the houses, garages, and sheds of the areas nearer to the city get plundered rather than mine as most of the thieves live inside the city and target places that are easier to get to and easier to get away from.Posted 4 years agoThe PinksterSubscriber
0 bike thefts but 5 cases of antisocial behaviour, 1 drugs, 1 criminal damage & arson and 2 ‘other thefts’ in July within a mile of where I live.
Looks like the countryside is an exciting place to live after all. It’s almost like a episode of Emmerdale every day round here. 😉Posted 4 years ago
