THIEVES have stolen pedal bikes from gardens in a Hartlepool neighbourhood.
Police from the Hartlepool Integrated Neighbourhood Team are warning residents to take cycles and any other valuables in at night after the thefts in Burn Valley ward of town in the last few days.
The team used social media to say to residents: “Please be vigilant and take pedal cycles and other valuable inside at night, or safely secure them.”
The warning comes just over a week after a spate of bike thefts, again from gardens, in the De Brus and West View areas.
Contact the team with any information or for advice on how best to protect property on 101.
