TEN stolen bicycles worth around £14,000 have been found in a garage in Boscombe.

Police have released an appeal hoping to find the owners of the valuable bicycles.

They were discovered after one victim was able to track his stolen bike using a chip inserted in it.

Officers were able to gain access to the garage and discovered a total of ten bicycles and a disc cutter, all believed to be stolen in recent weeks.

Police Constable Tom Ringer, of Bournemouth police, said: “I’ve been making a number of enquiries to try and find the owners of these bikes but have so far not been able to return them to their rightful owners.

“It appears that not all these items were reported stolen so if anyone recognises their bicycle or disc cutter in the pictures, please get in touch with us.

"If your bicycle has been stolen recently but it is not in these pictures, please report this to us through the normal channels and not refer to the reference number below as it is unlikely to be related to this particular investigation."
