IMAGES have been released after a man returned to his bicycle in Boscombe to find the wheels had been stolen.

At 10.30pm on Thursday, November 11, the victim arrived in Boscombe town centre and chained his black bicycle with 29-inch wheels to the bicycle rack next to the police box in Christchurch Road.

When he returned just before 1am on Friday, November 12, he found that the front and back wheel had been stolen.

“Unfortunately, the images are not very clear and I realise that it is difficult to see many of the details. However, I still hope that somebody may recognise those pictured.

“Anyone who has information to the identity of those responsible is urged to contact police.”
