Theft DescriptionStolen from: Lord Roberts Avenue, Leigh on Sea
Recovery DescriptionI put search flags up on Ebay etc., and 2 weeks after it was stolen my bike appeared on Ebay. It was being sold on auction by a shop about a mile up the road! I informed the police and they were able to recover it for me. What I learnt from this whole distressing experience is that Crimestoppers (i.e. 101 for a non-emergency crime) are absolutely useless. After I had reported it being spotted on Ebay and nothing was done after a week and the auction was slowly counting down (!) I chased it up with the local police station (Southend on Sea), but they had never heard of it! It wasn't until I threatened to complain that anything was done at all. After several months of being without my bike the police finally returned my bike to me...but no one was ever prosecuted. But I did get my very precious bike back :)
