Sorry to hear that.

Drop me a PM and a can give you the details of the officer who investigated my theft last year (Warwick), but suspect it's a similar group. I got one of the bikes back, but could only link the "possessor" to "Handling", and no way of proving he knew they were stolen.

If anybody knows where this pub is that people buy and sell bikes in...
