Trek’s Sheffield Fox Valley store hit by second break-in

For the second time in four months, Trek’s store at the Fox Valley shopping park in Stocksbridge, Sheffield, has been hit by a break-in.

The shop was raided in the early hours of 30th January, at around 3:30am. According to a report by the Sheffield Star, the thieves smashed their way into the front of the store and escaped with a number of bikes bikes worth thousands of pounds.

According to the report, the bikes stolen include:

  • Trek Powerfly E bike LT7 in grey, serial number WTU033G0046N
  • Trek Powerfly E bike FS5 in orange, serial number WTU211G1586N
  • Trek Powerfly E bike WSD5 in grey, serial number WTU116G1241N
  • Trek Powerfly E bike FS7 in black, serial number WTU069G0411M

However, a post on the bike shop’s Facebook page confirmed only one bike was taken, “Thankfully due to the in-store security” put in place.

The store has since reopened for business as usual, holding a bike maintenance class and first shop ride out of the year, last week.

The shop fared far worse in November last year, when 14 bikes were stolen from its premises in the early hours of the 21st, with over half of those being e-Bikes.

Anyone with any information has been encouraged to contact Trek’s customer care number in Milton Keynes – 01908 360140.
