Theft DescriptionThe bicycle got stolen with another bicycle on Tuesday, 11th of May around 4:30 PM from inside Avalon Cafe in South Bermondsey, the address is Unit D, Juno Way, Industrial Estate, SE14 5RW London. Nothing else, including cash tips, was stolen from the room and the area was very quiet at that time of the day meaning that nobody saw or heard anything.
Recovery DescriptionThe bike was found ditched in the bushes by a very kind person from the area not far away from where it was stolen. The bicycle was taken to the police station the very next day and was retrieved by the end of it. Incredibly fast turn of events, great effort from the finder, who is an amazing person, can't be thankful enough.
