Thieves Take 10k Worth of Bikes
£10,500 worth of bikes have been stolen from a teenager and his dad in Eastleigh.
Thieves broke into a shed in a back garden at Edward Avenue sometime between 11pm Saturday, October 20, and 7am Sunday, October 21. They broke off a padlock and forced the door open. The victims are a 47-year-old man and his son, 18.
Stolen property includes a £3000 KTM SXF motorcycle, model 250SX-F FACT.PEPL.MUSQ.ED. The bike is predominantly orange in colour with several stickers, including the name Connor.
Also taken was a £4,500 black Trek-fuel men’s mountain bike. This bike has Fox float front suspension forks, Easton carbon fibre handlebars and seat post, handmade Mavic wheel trims and Huigi hubs, a Chris King headset and Shimano transmission.
A Club Roost men’s mountain bike in matt grey with black wheel trims, valued at £2,500, was taken.
Small items include two boxes of bike parts, one orange and one white, valued at £200 and a black Fox-Sin City motocross helmet, valued at £200. The helmet has a white and red tribal pattern, with pictures of a busty woman and a deck of cards.
Another helmet, valued at £120, is a black Can Moto-cross open faced helmet with a silver design.
Various Halford and Draper tools, valued at £100, also are missing.
Eastleigh PC Paul Osborne is appealing for information from anyone who saw the orange motocross bike during the early hours of Sunday, October 21, or anyone who knows where it is.
“This incident is particularly devastating for the victim’s 18-year-old son who got the moto-cross bike as a present. He has invested a lot of time and money in getting it up to competition standard. And, on the morning they discovered the theft, he was due to take part in an event with it,” PC Osborne said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Osborne at Eastleigh on 101 or the anonymous Crimestoppers charity line on 0800 555 111.
