Theft Description

Bike was stolen on Thursday 11 January 2018, some time between 1530 and 2300 from Reading station, Vastern Road bike park (northern side). It was parked in the middle of the three bike racks, right hand side if standing with your back to the bus stop, facing the bike rack, approximately fourth or fifth parking bay. The lock was a cable lock, cut through, and they left my white Specialized helmet behind.
