Rare bikes worth thousands of pounds have been stolen from a Baldock workshop.
Police are appealing for information today after a number of ‘high-end’ bicycles and two sets of wheels were stolen from a workshop on Royston Road.
The burglary took place between 1pm on Tuesday, March 31, and 8pm on Wednesday, April 1, when offenders forced open the door of the workshop.
The stolen bikes include a Canondale CP CAAD, a Pinarello Dogma, a Giant TCR, a Pinarello Quattro, a Whyte 809, a Zipp 808 Firecrest and a Rolf Prima Ares 6.
Investigating officer Det Con Steve Cook said: “It is believed that several people were involved in this burglary as the rear end of a car, which was blocking the workshop door, was lifted up and moved away from it to allow the offenders to gain access.
