Bike Description

Plum Dawes Duchess, less than one year old. Some scuff marks/chipped paint on mudguards. Dark brown front mounted basket, silver vintage style AXA light and matte silver pannier rack. However these could be easily removed to make the bike less identifiable.

Theft Description

Stolen from my back garden in Caversham during the night 13/5/15-14/5/15. Stolen along with another bike - a Decathlon b'twin rockrider mountain/hybrid bike. The thief came round the back of the house via an alleyway and into the garden, lifted up the tarpaulin covering the bikes - also looked under another tarpaulin at some other bikes but as these were childs bikes they left them. Extremely quiet thief/thieves - my parents were sleeping directly above where the bikes were with their window open and didn't wake. They also looked in the garden shed where another bike was but didn't take anything. We think they must have checked it out beforehand because they knew exactly where the bikes were even though they're quite hidden away and there is no lighting down my street nor in the garden.
