Bike DescriptionA white framed bike with orange and black markings on the frame with 'Mongoose' branding, with a white seat, black handle bars and black mud guards under the frame and over the back wheel. The bike was stolen without the back wheel so the back wheel and tyre is different to the front. A White framed bike, with white seat and black tiers.
Theft DescriptionThe bike was stolen in Brixton. It was locked up with a heavy duty lock and two steel cables. The thief used bolt cutters to remove the bike apart from the back wheel and then stole a rear wheel from the another bike so the bike has two different wheel types, the front being a proper mountain bike wheel and the back being a standard bike tyre.
Recovery DescriptionMy bike was stolen in mid January 2021, I immediately registered by bike as missing and I reported the bike as stolen to the Police. The Police followed up, took a statement and collected CCTV images which showed the bike being stolen. In early February I was contacted by the Police who informed me that someone had been arrested who happened to be in possession of my bike. I was able to collect my bike from the Police the same day.
