Goldy’s Cycles in Kent has been broken into by determined thieves who cut four separate locks to gain access.
In the raid five customer bikes, shop stock and a plethora of shop tools were taken as thieves emptied the property of as much as they could carry.
“Police and insurance are doing their thing, but in the meantime I need to concentrate on securing my premises. As you can appreciate that’s a priority so I am unlikely to be booking work in for the remainder of this week. I am so, SO sorry this has happened and it’s as upsetting to me as it is to the owners of the bikes,” wrote the store on its Facebook page yesterday.
The full list of stolen items, for which a cash reward is offered for information leading to recovery, reads as follows:
